United States of Jihad: Investigating America's Homegrown Terrorists - Peter Bergen

Many of us think we know something about those in the United States who’ve been charged with some kind of jihadist terrorist crime. We might think that most of them are foreigners, or that they turned to terrorism as a result of some traumatic life experience. Well, get ready to have these and other common preconceptions proved wrong. In United States of Jihad, Peter Bergen examines the 330 people in the United States who have faced terrorism charges since 9/11. Drawing on years of experience writing about terrorism issues, he looks at what has motivated homegrown terrorists and how U.S. institutions have responded while trying to balance security and liberty. Janet Napolitano, the former Homeland Security secretary, called Bergen’s work “the best one-volume treatment available on the current state of jihad in America.”
