'Beau Grosscup shows that aerial bombardment, which was used many years ago as a means of terrorizing native populations in Africa and the Middle East, has become the primary form of terrorism in more recent decades. As he indicates, 'strategic terror' is not classed as 'terrorism' in the West, but this reflects political power and a resultant politicization of word usage, and an unwillingness to confront the human costs and immorality of aerial bombardment. Beau Grosscup's Strategic Terror is a major and much needed addition to the literature on terrorism'. - Edward S. Herman (author of The Real Terror Network and co-author of The Terrorism Industry).

'Strategic Terror is a must read for these highly militarized times. Grosscup shows us that the present day use of indiscriminate bombing with its high casualty rates among civilians has a long troubling history. He puts the 'Shock and Awe' strategy of the Iraq war in a context of past colonial and imperial 'othering' and convincingly documents how the present 'war on terror' is really a war of U.S. terrorism.' - Zillah Eisenstein, (author of Hatreds, Sexualized and Racialized Conflicts of the 21st Century; Global Obscenities; and Against Empire, Feminisms, Racism and the West).
