Pursue[s] the pathology of terrorism through the centuries... A fascinating amount of information.
A disquieting but fascinating book... Strongly recommended.
(British Journal of Psychiatry
An honest and penetrating effort to explain the role of human psychology in terrorism.
(Canadian Journal of Political Science
These essays contain an excellent blend of theory with specific facts and narrative accounts of dealing with terrorism. I don't know of another book which has the sweep of this one, the illustrative detail, and the welcome, refreshing recognition that there is no neat explanation for terrorism. This book will have a major impact on future research.
(David F. Musto, Yale School of Medicine)
