  • The Smarter Bomb: Lecture by Professor Anat Berko

    Book presentation by author Professor Anat Berko

    This unique work focuses on the motivations of suicide bombers, especially women and children and those who dispatch them. As a woman and a mother, Anat Berko was able to win the trust of imprisoned bombers and speak with them intimately. Entering Israel’s most heavily secured cells, she met with female and adolescent would-be suicide bombers and their dispatchers, lawyers, and interrogators.  Anat Berko, Ph.D, a Lt. Col. (Res) in the Israel Defense Forces, conducts research for the National Security Council, and is a research fellow at the International Policy Institute for Counter-Terrorism at the Interdisciplinary Center in Israel. She was a visiting professor at George Washington University and has written two books about suicide bombers. “The Path to Paradise,” and the recently released, “The Smarter Bomb: Women and Children as Suicide Bombers” (Rowman & Littlefield)
