Abu Nidal, the world's most notorious Arab terrorist, has been responsible for countless deaths and acts of destruction. Yet little is known about him or his organization. Now, Patrick Seale, the distinguished British journalist, tells the whole story of Abu Nidal, including the sources of his vast personal fortune, the complex motives behind his often inexplicable acts of terrorism, and his ties to various Middle East and European governments and their intelligence agencies. The result is the first thorough and authoritative account of Abu Nidal's career, the structure of his worldwide organization, and the masters whom he serves. - Jacket flap.
