Easily the most thorough treatment of terrorism's complexities on the market today is how one reviewer described the set from which this single volume is drawn: the 4-volume Psychology of Terrorism. Here, Editor Chris E. Stout presents seven classic chapters from across that multivolume set, which brought together experts from around the world in the aftermath of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. Stout includes a new introduction with this condensed version, along with appendices that will enable lay readers and professionals to recognize and treat symptoms of biological attack, take basic steps to prepare for terrorist incidents, and find resources for more information.

Review quote

"This timely book addresses a subject that may be crucial to confront if Americans are to progress beyond the cliches about why terrorists 'hate' us.... This book successfully counters the simplistic notion that terrorists are pathological personalities while acknowledging the limits of applying a psychological perspective to a fundamentally political problem. Authoritative yet highly readable, this compilation is recommended for large public libraries and academic collections that do not own the full set." - Library Journal
