"Psychology of Terrorism is a must read for anyone interested in understanding the psychological roots of modern terrorism. Its profoundness is overshadowed only by the impressive line of international experts it hosts from the field of psychology. The volume deals with the issue of modern terrorism in a way unprecedented in academic literature. Issues such as the psychology of mass mediated fear, psychological resilience, and effects of exposure to terrorism are thoroughly researched and presented with utmost clarity. With its rare and unique perspective on modern terrorism, this volume helps map the roots of some of the most burning problems of the post-Sep. 11th world. Anyone interested in understanding what drives people to become suicide terrorists should read this book."--Isaac Ben-Israel, Major General (Retired), Professor and Director of Security Studies, Tel Aviv University<br> "An outstanding and timely publication. It should be read by all practitioners, regardless of their discipline. It provides the most up-to-date behavioral science perspective on the psychology of terrorism in a practical format. The volume editors and contributors are truly world class scholars."--Pat DeLeon, former President, American Psychological Association<br> "A comprehensive and thorough review of an emerging discipline that can only grow in importance in the future. It could well be the most relevant topic of our time."--Elizabeth Holmes, American Board of Professional Psychology, Captain, Medical Service Corps., United States Navy (Retired), Center for the Study of Professional Military Ethics<br> "The contents of this volume provide an incredibly valuable and vital resource. The work ofthese contributors will enable our profession to more readily step forward and engage in research and clinical endeavors aimed at reducing both terrorist threats and the accompanying psychological consequences. Although I rue the need for this excellent resource, I remain grateful for it."--From the foreword by Gerald P. Koocher, President, American Psychological Association (2006)<br>
