These original essays describe the internal life of terrorist organizations in fascinating detail. They show how no description of terrorist behaviour is adequate without a grasp of the deep tensions that often characterize such groups, and  an appreciation of how firmly implanted in our culture terrorist traditions have become, since the middle of the nineteenth century.
