Disturbed: Terrorist Behavioral Profiles is the first book of its kind. Written by world renowned criminal profiler, Dr. Deborah Schurman-Kauflin, Disturbed leads the reader through the minds and behaviors of terrorists. Drawing from a life spent studying serial killers, Dr. Schurman-Kauflin now explores the creation of terrorists, what leads them to become extreme, and how they conduct their attacks. Disturbed provides a unique overview of how groups such as al-Qaeda, the IRA, the FARC, Hezbollah, Hamas, al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigade, Aum Shinrikyo and many other organizations emerged. Chapters are devoted to recruitment, infiltration, sexual components, spying, stalking, the attack, and post crime behaviors. There are new psychological and behavioral terrorist profiles. From their early backgrounds, through their twisted attacks, Disturbed guides the reader into the world of terrorism, providing a chilling look at the childhoods of the world's most cunning predators. Harrowing stories of blood-filled attacks and sexual perversions are reviewed as the book enters life through the eyes of the terrorists. Even small behavioral nuances are revealed to show how recruits are drawn to terror organizations. Every terrorist group has leaders, followers, and pivots, and the Doctor reviews each type in detail. She even created new profiles of female and child terrorists. From this research, the Doctor shows how to stop terrorists by presenting who becomes a terrorist and why. Dr. Schurman-Kauflin painstakingly details every juncture of the terror cycle, showing counterterrorism units and security professionals what to look for before, during, and after an attack. From the words of the "freedom fighters" themselves, the Doctor has created a graphic analysis of the world's most dangerous villains. Disturbed is mandatory reading for Military, Government, Homeland Security, and everyone interested in how to stop terrorists. The Doctor trained 2000 FBI agents/police.
