Beskrivning

The authors explain how and why we must understand the conditions that spur youths to become martyrs by making them think suicide bombings and other acts of self-destructive terrorism are a 'good' way to die. The authors present cutting-edge research and theory about the political, social, and living conditions that raise the risk of children deciding to join organisations that use terrorist tactics, and, having joined, to volunteer for missions in which they intentionally die while causing death and destruction, in order to make an impact.Equally important, the authors also offer concrete suggestions about how ordinary individuals can help reduce and prevent terrorism around the globe.
