  • The Looming Tower: Al Qaeda and the Road to 9/11 by Lawrence Wright

Radicalism usually prospers in the gap between rising expectations and declining opportunities. This is especially true where the population is young, idle, and bored; where the art is impoverished; where entertainment—movies, theater, music—is policed or absent altogether; and where young men are set apart from the consoling and socializing presence of women.

- The Looming Tower, pg 107

  • The Main Enemy: The Inside Story of the CIA's Final Showdown with the KGB by Milton Bearden and James Risen
