Sageman Cited in Two Articles

In yesterday’s, two articles on the state of terrorism mention the work of forensic psychiatrist and counterterrorism expert Marc Sageman. In one article, "Winning or losing," The Economist credits Sageman’s book, Leaderless Jihad, with provoking a debate on the strength of al-Qaeda in relation to the threat of loosely organized groups of Western radicals. In "Doing their own thing," The Economist mentions Sageman’s assertion that European Muslims are more likely to be drawn into violent jihadist activity than their U. S. counterparts because of America’s social mobility and relatively more inclusive attitude toward immigrants.
