Building psychopolitical profiles of ten well-known terrorists to identify the factors that encourage such individuals to cross the line from nonviolence to violence, Pearlstein suggests that most political terrorists suffer from a "narcissistic rage" that causes them to attack themselves and others. Among the subjects he examines are Susan Stern and Diana Oughton of the Weathermen, Donald DeFreeze and Patricia Soltysik of the Symbionese Liberation Army, Ilich Ramirez Sanchez, better known as Carlos, Ulrike Meinhoff of West Germany's Red Army Faction, and Renato Curcio of Italy's Red Brigades. This study, which is well-grounded in the literatures on political terrorism and the psychology of violent behavior, will be provocative for knowledgeable readers and intriguing for laypersons trying to understand terror ism.
