Michelle Shephard is an author and national security reporter for the Toronto Star. Reviewers have called Decade of Fear a darkly entertaining journey through the world of national security since 9/11. Shephard conducted hundreds of interviews worldwide, and weaves together stories of warlords, presidents, spies, grieving widows and global terrorists, to describe the historic decade where often the West’s “solutions” for terrorism only served to exacerbate the problem.
