Descripción del producto


'Well-presented body of knowledge likely to be helpful in understanding these violent organized groups.' - Kirkus    

'Terrorism is a form of psychological warfare, requiring a psychologically sophisticated response based on an understanding of how terrorists think. Jerry Post provides us a road map-not only of the mind of the terrorist-but also how we can use that understanding to dissuade, deter, and destroy terrorist groups. The strategy Post develops is based on decades of studying violent individuals, including interviews of terrorists, some of which he describes in detail in these pages. Post is a teacher of terrorism teachers-and his latest offering is a gift to all who wish to understand the myriad psychological roots of terrorism.' -Jessica Stern, author of Terror in the Name of God and Academic Director of the Program on Terrorism and the Law at Harvard Law School, USA

'Dr. Jerrold Post is a pioneer in the study of terrorist psychology. In this capstone book, he takes us into the minds of the terrorists through their own words, persuasively demonstrating how disturbingly 'normal' they are in their own cultural and historical contexts. He makes a powerful case that to deter terrorists we must understand their psychology, and lays out a comprehensive strategy for countering their vicious forms of psychological warfare. Only by countering them at the level of their destructive mindsets can we more effectively compete in the 'war for hearts and minds.' - Richard H. Solomon, President, U.S. Institute of Peace

'Post provides revealing illustrations of the terroristic mindset, from IRA henchmen to Palestinian martyr wannabes, straight from the horse's mouth. Rather than psychoanalyze them at the risk of reading interpretations into their views and actions, he lets terrorists speak for themselves - in words collated from interviews by interrogators, scholars and journalists.' - Tibor Krausz, The Jerusalem Report

Reseña del editor

Terrorism did not begin with 9/11. This book remembers the long history of terrorism and considers the question: what makes people terrorists? By looking into the mind of terrorists, Post sheds light on their paths to pathology and provides detailed analysis of how to combat them in the contemporary world.
