Book Review, Issue 20
- Monthly Issue Featuring Special Book Reviews about Terrorism.
Drawing on interdisciplinary research from diverse fields and sectors like the military, academia, neuroscience, social psychology, and business, this book’s central premise is that while the leaders of terrorist organizations may be ideologically driven, those who join are not. Therefore, a long-term approach to counterterrorism must address the underlying grievances attracting individuals to the path of militancy and extremism. Terrorist groups like Daesh are adept at exploiting perceptions of economic inequality, social exclusion, and political bias—investing hundreds of hours into radicalizing just one individual.
