Anyone alive who remembers the tragedies that occurred in America on 9/11 will find this book helpful in understanding the mind of a terrorist. To the average thinking human being, the thoughtless murder of innocent people is hard to understand. When someone seeks to justify senseless killing behind the physod of religion, its even more troubling and despicable. Its clear Mr. Juergensmeyer did some indepth research to help provide rational thinking people with a picture into the mind of individuals who are able to commit terrorist acts and simply put their head on a pillow and sleep calmly, without remorse--assuming they are not suicide bombers. Its even more troubling to read the comments of so-called religious scholars who sanction the killing of innocent people simply because they don't believe the same way as the intended victim. This provides details of the thinking behind the terrorism and is a good work for those seeking to understand the single biggest threat facing America today.
