Chapter Summary

This introductory chapter provides an overview of the book A Theory of International Terrorism: Understanding Islamic Militancy and its chapters. The first part of the book presents the phenomenon of the terror triangle, highlighting the nation-state's structural pathology that engenders violence both for its creation and preservation. The second part of the book presents the changing ontology of Islamic terrorism, that is, how terrorism experts understand, analyze, and explain Islamic terrorism to the world. The third part of the book offers two sets of solutions to minimize and possibly eradicate triangular terrorism. Finally, Free State solutions are offered on the theory that the phenomenon of the terror triangle is the pathology of the nation-state. If Israel and Palestine begin to develop as Free States with open borders within a regional community, the era of violence might gradually fall behind them.
