A history of terrorism in Canada from Confederation to the Present

This book is a look at terrorism and counter terrorism in Canada as told by a former Canadian counter terrorism strategic intelligence analyst together with the experiences of dozens of his colleagues with the Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS) and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP). It is thus an ‘insiders” story peppered with anecdotes from the women and men tasked with keeping Canada and its allies safe.
