This book argues that the forces behind the new terrorism are structural in nature, the product of modernization and globalization, and that terrorists are using the instruments of modernization and globalization to wage their war. Global communications have empowered terrorist organizations, linking like-minded groups, and making it easier to set up essential support structures among diaspora and migrant communities around the world. It also explains that these networks disseminate propaganda, raise funds, recruit and train terrorists and procure weapons. Asia's vast and extensive terrorist groups have provided fertile soil for breeding young and innocent people as terrorists.
