The Threat From Within

The Threat From Within examines what drives Al Qaeda-inspired radicalization to violence, how to detect it, and how to confront it. The chapters discuss behaviors and ideologies that are observable and tangible in radicalized individuals or those on the path to violent radicalization. These behaviors are drawn from a variety of cases, such as planning acts of terrorism, traveling to join terrorist groups, or participating in violent jihadi conflict outside the country. The main case study is Canada, and each chapter features many examples that range from Ted Kaczynski (the “Unabomber”) and Anders Brevik in Norway to Tamerlan Tsarnaev and Damian Clairmont, a Canadian citizen who died fighting in Syria.

A comprehensive list of behavioral indicators that someone is becoming a violent extremist is provided, followed by a look at what is being done to confront this threat as well as what could be done.

It shows how Jihadists use their propaganda to continue what they see as their obligation to fight to protect Islam, and how extremist messaging interprets these conflicts. It identifies and explains the ...

The Full Mountie

A best-of selection from the popular Globe and Mail weekly contest of wit and word play From “Clan of the Care Bears” to “Poutine on the Ritz,” this extremely funny book delivers the very best entries from the illustrious ten-year history of the Globe Challenge. Every week the Challenge pitches the ball to an unknown quantity of batters, and every week they return it with an unpredictable force and spin. Asked for Canadianized movie titles and they supply “The Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner.” Asked for lines that would abruptly end a book, and they offer “Aye, Captain Ahab, we saw the great white whale, and we killed it.” Advertising endorsements from dead celebrities? Try “Charles Darwin, for Turtles chocolates: Your natural selection.” Funny, brainy, surreal, or just plain silly, these puns, poems, and alternative takes on reality are always ingenious, often inspired. With cartoons and amusing introductions to each section by the multi-talented author.
