From the Publisher:

This book expands Arthur Deikman's earlier work, The Wrong Way Home, a "CHOICE Outstanding Academic Book of 1991." That work provided the best explanation of cult dynamics available and showed how the same psychological processes can be seen throughout society in differing degrees. This edition identifies terrorism as an extreme form of this kind of thinking and suggests that the first step to solving the problem lies in understanding the psychological and social causes.

From the Author:

From a larger perspective, it may be that our struggle to deal with the terrorist threat could make clear the danger inherent in any ideology, any system of belief offering utopian goals at the cost of compliance, conformity, and the suppression of dissent. The warning sign of ideology is the sharp division between Them and Us, whether it is based on politics, economics, race or religion. The possibilities for destruction and misery endemic to such beliefs have been multiplied many times by modern science. As a result, the few can now destroy the many, and that power is becoming increasingly accessible. Hopefully, the danger may cause us to recognize that we all share the same needs for meaning, security, and a positive future. From that point of view we are one family. Understanding this fundamental fact is the antidote to cult thinking.

There is no Them. There is only Us.
