    One thought on “Decade of Fear: Reporting from Terrorism's Grey Zone

    1. Another book I got via first read giveaway I really enjoyed this one Michelle Shephard writes on a lot of the details that get lost in the headlines I don t really know what to say other than that this book is highly entertaining and highly educational I like to think I generally follow the news, not avidly but generally, and this book was full of stuff I knew little or nothing of and cleared up the details on a lot of stories issues that the media seems to have put in to far less nuanced terms [...]


    2. This was a Book Club pick for February 2012 and I was not looking forward to reading it I do enjoy non fiction books, but not necessarily politically themed ones Michelle Shephard is a gifted writer She takes us to the heart of the issue of the origins of terrorism and it is interesting what she does not discuss Iraq or Afghanistan We go deep into Yemen, Somalia, Toronto and Guantanimo Bay I had difficulty keeping people straight, but felt that was my cultural background and my own challenge, no [...]


    3. So far I am absolutely loving this book I hate when I have to put it downI know it was probably a very difficult book to writebut I think that Michelle Shepard did an awesome job I hope to be done with it soonI will definitely put a lengthy review together when I am finished It really makes me think about the world situationIf you have a chance, it is a worthwhile read


    4. This is a good book to read slowly The chapters on Pakistan and Yemen are very complex and involve many different people, groups, and events It is easy to get lost even the author admits that she doesn t fully understand the political atmosphere of Pakistan However, I have a list of books on my shelf to get to and I didn t give this one the time is deserved which would have involved rereading a few chapters two or three times to fully understand and as a result, much of it flew over my head It i [...]


    5. A decent book on the ten years since 9 11 through the eyes of a Canadian national security reporter Shephard s book is not a heavy read, though it is at times depressing While never really delving too deep into policies or problems, it is a good overview of what has happened in many parts of the world since 9 11, especially in Somalia and Yemen Shephard is one of the few reporters who has kept an eye on Somalia over the entire decade and she is very good in reporting on this area My problem with [...]


    6. Decade of Fear is yet another book that I won from This non fiction work by Canadian journalist Michelle Shephard travels the globe from NYC to Pakistan to Guantanamo and places in between The focus if the book is the post 9 11 media coverage of terrorism Shepard s writing was engaging and interesting.


    7. What a read Haha Okay I wrote it so have to say that Thanks for all the kind reviews Was very cathartic to write sadly there may be a sequel coming.
