Fighting the Far Enemy: The Meaning and Evolution of Jihadist Campaigns Against the West

Grant Year: 2016

Daveed Gartenstein-Ross and Nathaniel Barr will research and write a book that explores whether jihadi terrorist attacks thought to be lone wolf operations are connected to the external operations sections of extremist networks based in the Middle East. They will analyze primary source materials from Islamic terrorist organizations, Western law enforcement institutions, and media accounts on jihadi plots targeting Western Europe and North America since 1993.
