The paper discusses how "Seeds of Terror" speaks about the growth and expansion of al-Qaeda's terrorist network in Southeast Asia. The paper looks at Ressa's portrayal of how they build their cells or networks from grassroots to political levels and work with brutal means such as killings, bombings and kidnappings. The paper explains that Ressa's main point is that al-Qaeda is not only the homegrown group we thought it was especially after the 9/11 events, but is also an organization with clout and financing that can extend its reach in the fours corners of the globe. The paper includes book reviews by LCDR Aboul-Enein of the Marine Corps Gazette, the Publisher's Weekly/Reed Business Information, Inc. and by Joe Moe of Amazon.com.
