Deadly Connections

This book presents a systematic dissection of the phenomenon of state-supported terrorism.

Daniel Byman, Deadly Connections: States that Sponsor Terrorism, Cambridge, 2005.

This book deals with the relationship between terrorist groups and states that support them. According to Byman, states use terrorism as a multifaceted tool, often to retain political and economic influence, and their patronage includes sanctuary, supplies, logistics, or, as is the case with Iran and Hizbollah, ideological support.

The book presents a systematic dissection of the phenomenon of state-supported terrorism. It outlines a range of tactics -- including air strikes, economic sanctions, political isolation and backing for a regime's domestic foes -- that can be mixed and matched as needed, emphasizing prevention rather than reaction.
