Full Description

The Terrorism Trap is a powerfully argued analysis of the deeper causes and meaning of September 11. Why did the attacks happen? Who is to blame? Who is taking advantage of the crisis? Who is hurt by all the ensuing events? Why do they hate us? Responding to such questions, Michael Parenti probes the religious zealotry of today, Afghanistan's hidden history, and the course of US-led globalization that has impoverished and angered much of the world. This acute dissection of the political, economic, and religious forces behind the attacks provides historical perspective and insight into how to prevent future terrorism and save democracy. "...it is a thorough explanations of [Parenti's] views on the political and economic tangle that has linked US business interest to the kind of animosity that fuels terrorist attacks; an interest that, rather than being squelched or even crippled, has exploited the weaknesses of a national and global economy severely shocked by the attacks." -Corey O'Malley, Friction Magazine "It should be required reading for anyone who believes in a true democracy rather than a corporate state and/or a security state.
Parenti emphasizes the need for a change in U.S. policy as it relates to the world free market, which has become a metaphor for the obscene differences in income for "the haves and have nots." Driven by a love of democracy and a passion for the truth, Parenti strips naked the secretive machinations of the U.S. government leaders that give little regard to people throughout the world." -Alex Vavoulis, Community Alliance.
