The Bottom Line--
This publication is a superbly crafted volume of closely-interrelated chapters that cover the key concepts above and many more substantive issues as well. The critical ideas included, such as terrorist psychology, pathways leading to terror, technology's effect on terrorism, effective counter-terrorism measures, and more are essential to our understanding of this difficult subject. While it is largely grounded in psychological aspects of the counter-terrorism discipline, the book is so solidly and lucidly written that it should be included on anyterrorism reading list for professionals and academics alike. The Psychology of Counter-Terrorism is a new `must have' standard for anyone serious in studying or countering the scourge of terrorism.
