"This is a comprehensive approach to a difficult phenomenon bysomeone who knows his subject well. Pedhazur writes with the coolclarity of a seasoned social scientist, but with the sensitivity ofone who has lived through suicide attacks and can count formerstudents and colleagues among the victims. Comparing cases ofMuslim militants associated with Al-Qaeda, Hamas and Hizbollah,with Sri Lankan Tamil separatists, Kurdish nationalists andJapanese kamikaze fighters, he derives a complex analytic frameworkwith cultural, political and socio-psychological dimensions. Thisbook brings our understanding of this increasingly familiar form ofterrorism to a new level of sophistication."
