ISG’S WHITNEY GRESPIN’S PUBLISHED BOOK REVIEW

Posted: Aug 31, 2022

In the 2022 Autumn issue of The U.S. Army War College Quarterly, Parameters, ISG Africa Regional Program Lead Dr. Whitney Grespin reviews Benedict Wilkinson’s Scripts of Terror: The Stories Terrorists Tell Themselves (Oxford University Press, 2020). In the review, she notes that, "the work reads primarily as academic. Wilkinson’s (admirable) observation of the central problem lacks a 'step further' approach." Nevertheless, Dr. Grespin goes on to say that, "Even with areas in need of improvement, Scripts of Terror could serve as a useful primer for VEO case studies. It could prepare practitioners as pre-deployment reading for a better understanding of the foundations and evolutions of potential adversaries."
