Peter Bergen spoke about his book, United States of Jihad, at Politics & Prose on Tuesday, February 9, 2016.

In his fifth book on radical Islam, Bergen looks closer to home, investigating the motivations of some of the more than 300 U.S. citizens who have been indicted for or convicted of terrorist acts—some carried out in this country. Focusing in detail on New Mexico-born Anwar al-Awlaki, the Tsarnaev brothers’ mentor; and Alabama-native Omar Hammami, among others, Bergen draws on his deep familiarity with counterterrorism agencies, and asks how we can preserve both security and freedom while staying alert to radical threats.
