BOOK NOTES.

Byline: The Register-Guard

Terrorism expert

to speak at UO

Robert Pape, author of "Dying to Kill: The Strategic Logic of Suicide Terrorism," will discuss his book at a free lecture at the University of Oregon at 7 p.m. Thursday in 180 Prince Lucien Campbell Hall, 1415 Kincaid St.

``Islamic fundamentalism is not as closely associated with suicide terrorism as many people think,'' Pape said. ``Suicide terrorist attacks are not driven by religion as much as they are by a clear strategic logic - to compel modern democracies to withdraw military forces.''

Pape, a professor of political science at the University of Chicago, based his book on information he compiled in a complete database of every suicide attack that occurred around the world between 1980 and 2004.

The Oregon Humanities Center and the University of Oregon Political Science Department are sponsoring the talk. For more information, call 346-3934.
