"An important contribution…. Davis systematically and holistically lays out all of the components of terrorism financing and provides ample examples of each." —Michael Freeman, Naval Postgraduate School

DESCRIPTION

Terrorists need money ... to recruit and train people, to buy weapons, to maintain safe houses, to carry out attacks. Which raises the question: how do they procure and protect funds to finance their operations? In Illicit Money, Jessica Davis thoroughly answers that question.

Davis explores the full spectrum of terrorist finance, drawing on extensive case studies to dissect how individuals, cells, and organizations raise and manage, as well as hide, funds. In her concluding chapters, she considers both opportunities and challenges related to countering these illicit activities.
