Editorial Reviews

Review


"Psychology of Terrorism is a must read for anyone interested in understanding the psychological roots of modern terrorism. Its profoundness is overshadowed only by the impressive line of international experts it hosts from the field of psychology. The volume deals with the issue of modern
terrorism in a way unprecedented in academic literature. Issues such as the psychology of mass mediated fear, psychological resilience, and effects of exposure to terrorism are thoroughly researched and presented with utmost clarity. With its rare and unique perspective on modern terrorism, this
volume helps map the roots of some of the most burning problems of the post-Sep. 11th world. Anyone interested in understanding what drives people to become suicide terrorists should read this book."--Isaac Ben-Israel, Major General (Retired), Professor and Director of Security Studies, Tel Aviv
University


"An outstanding and timely publication. It should be read by all practitioners, regardless of their discipline. It provides the most up-to-date behavioral science perspective on the psychology of terrorism in a practical format. The volume editors and contributors are truly world class
scholars."--Pat DeLeon, former President, American Psychological Association


"A comprehensive and thorough review of an emerging discipline that can only grow in importance in the future. It could well be the most relevant topic of our time."--Elizabeth Holmes, American Board of Professional Psychology, Captain , Medical Service Corps., United States Navy (Retired), Center
for the Study of Professional Military Ethics


"The contents of this volume provide an incredibly valuable and vital resource. The work of these contributors will enable our profession to more readily step forward and engage in research and clinical endeavors aimed at reducing both terrorist threats and the accompanying psychological
consequences. Although I rue the need for this excellent resource, I remain grateful for it."--From the foreword by Gerald P. Koocher, President, American Psychological Association (2006)

"In sum, it would be difficult to find a more thorough and comprehensive compendium on the psychology of terrorism in all its important aspects than that represented by this volume. The book is well-written and well-edited, and manages to achieve that rare balancing act of a multi-authored, edited
book: the chapters are supportive and reinforcing of one another, without being repetitive and redundant. The authors and editors are to be commended for producing a one-stop-shopping handbook of the psychology of terrorism that can serve as a university-level course textbook or as a scholarly and
practical reference manual for one of the most critical challenges of our new century."--International Journal of Emergency Mental Health


"In this important comprehensive volume, leading academic experts present their findings on the psychology of individuals who become terrorists and the psychological theories that are relevant to the treatment and clinical responses to terrorist events, including the treatment of special populations
such as children and older adults." -- Joshua Sinai's Top 150 Books on Terrorism and Counter-terrorism article in Perspectives on Terrorism
