View all copies of this ISBN edition:

This book takes a broadly psychological and behavioral perspective on terrorists, but in addition locates the discussion within its social, political and policy context.

Drawing together what we know about the terrorist as an individual and his or her context, this book offers a distinctive approach to understanding the terrorist and terrorism. A key quality of the work is that it draws on contemporary thinking from a range of allied disciplines, including criminology and, in particular, situational approaches to crime control.

The book is structured in five broad sections, with chapters in each section delivering more detailed analysis. Key features of the book include:

  • the narrative makes extensive use of examples and case studies to illustrate the points being made;
  • breadth of coverage;
  • drawing together of insights from a wide range of social and behavioural science disciplines;
  • a distinctively critical approach;
  • develops a practical, behavioral perspective.

Written by a leading scholar, this book will be of great interest to students of terrorism studies, political violence, criminology, behavioural psychology and security studies/IR in general.
