About the Book

“… authoritative account of a significant new terrorist tactic that is likely to become more pervasive in our increasingly sophisticated technological and medical age in which it is becoming easier for the terrorist adversary to use the types of body cavity bombs that will be capable of evading detection technologies ...”

Dr. Joshua Sinai, Washington, DC-based consultant on counterterrorism studies and author of Active Shooter: A Handbook on Prevention.

“Body Cavity Bombers shows how what was once a lurid Hollywood fantasy has emerged as a legitimate threat, dissects the risk with clinical precision, and soberly considers the remediation options.”

Dr. Nils Gilman, Director of Research at Monitor 360 and co-editor of Deviant Globalization.

“A timely and important book about a disgusting subject. In showing how the human body might be used to carry and conceal explosive devices, terrorism experts Bunker and Flaherty have left no stone unturned.”

Dr. Martin van Creveld, one of the world’s leading writers on military history and strategy, with a special interest in the future of war, and author of twenty books including The Transformation of War.

“Those in the front line of identifying and taking necessary action to counter these new techniques of destruction would be well advised to read Dr. Bunker and Dr. Flaherty’s realistic assessment.”

Dr. Stephen Sloan, internationally recognized terrorism scholar and author/co-author of fourteen books on terrorism.
