The Carlos Complex: A Study In Terror

By Christopher Dobson and Ronald Payne

The story of Carlos the Jackal, once the most wanted criminal in the world, is the story of modern crime and terrorism itself.

Financed by both Saddam Hussein and Muammar Gadhafi, he was the mastermind behind attacks as notorious as the OPEC oil siege and the Munich massacre, in which eleven members of the Israeli Olympic team were taken hostage and murdered during the 1972 games.

Investigating Carlos the Jackal – real name Illich Ramírez Sánchez – espionage experts Christopher Dobson and Ronald Payne have used his story to present a brilliant, brutal depiction of terrorism in the 1970s. From the beginnings of the movement to sinister connections with Palestine and Russia, The Carlos Complex is a fascinating study of the makings of modern terrorism.

Christopher Dobson and Ronald Payne have between them more than 40 years of experience as foreign correspondents. They have covered terrorist activity on four continents for The Sunday Times, The Daily Telegraph, ABC, and NBC News.
