In a follow up to his previous book (Terror on the Internet), Gabriel Weimann’s newest work describes a growing and untamed cyberspace environment that is providing a natural and effective base of operations for the next generation of online terrorist. Are efforts to thwart those online efforts keeping pace with the level of threat? That’s the focus of this edition of Wilson Center NOW.
