In SPIRAL: Trapped in the Forever War award-winning journalist Mark Danner offers readers a shrewd analysis of why Americas War on Terror has persisted for well over a decade and why it seems to have no end in sight. In this chilling cautionary tale of Orwellian repercussions (Kirkus Reviews) Danner describes the ways in which the terrorist attacks of 9/11 have led America into a perpetual and continuously widening war that has put the country in an endless state of exception.

Mark Danners Spiral lays bare the way a jihadist strategy of provocation, playing on Americas infinite capacity for oversimplification and overreaction, sucked the United States into endless wars. This is a book that must be read, debated, and deeply understood if we are ever to extricate ourselves from the world of quagmires created by the global War on Terror.  Christopher Dickey, Foreign Editor ofThe Daily Beast

A clear-eyed and shrewd examination of how easily terrorists achieve their goals of inspiring      fear and retaliation. Publishers Weekly

Mark Danner is the most brilliant, fearless, and illuminating of investigative journalists, who has not hesitated to take us, another harrowing time, into the heart of our particular political darkness Joyce Carol Oates

In Mark Danners eloquent and unsparing analysis, Americas War on Terror has
degeneratedinto a downward spiral that has tarnished its laws, its reputation, and its soul.There is no better account of what the forever war has done to this country and
what we need to do to get the battle against terrorism onto the right track.
Michael Ignatieff, Harvard Kennedy School
