Proceedings from an April 2011 conference that examined the multidimensional aspects of the Al-Qaida threat in various theaters where it currently operates or may do so in the future. The symposium brought together authorities on Al-Qaida from academia, government (both military and civilian), think tanks, and media from both the United States and from the regions under discussion. Edited by Norman Cigar and Stephanie E. Kramer. This project was sponsored by the Marine Corps University, the Minerva Initiative, and the Marine Corps Foundation.

One key factor that emerged from the various presentations was the sheer variety of issues, leaderships, local security environments, and prospects for the local groups that are affiliated with Al-Qaida in some way. Other key judgments are also revealed including that Al-Qaida continues to harbor implacable hostility toward the international system, the United States, Israel, and many local governments.

Regional and territorial maps are interspersed throughout the book to showcase key areas to the group.  Some may find interest in the metrics set by Al-Qaida, as well as the Goods and Services Exchanged Between Al-Qaida and its partners that are showcased through charts and tables.

Each presentation by the various contributors are represented as separate essays within this text.
