What People are Saying About This

Brian Urquhart

"A MOST VALUABLE WORK. Once again Yael Danieli, this time with Danny Brom and Joe Sills, has illuminated a very poignant, and contemporary, human problem. The trauma of terrorism and its consequences now affect an ever-widening group of human beings. Danieli's book sees terrorism as a form of psychological warfare against whole communities, even nations. She analyzes its effects and suggest ways in which the resilience of individuals and groups can be strengthened against this insidious, and now increasingly common, plague."
Former Under-Secretary-General of the United Nations

Eric K. Noji

"Danieli, Brom, and Sills have compiled A MOST USEFUL TEXT ON THE PSYCHOLOGY OF TERRORISM that should be REQUIRED READING not only for mental health professionals and academicians, but for emergency managers, public health officials, and other decision makers charged with ensuring that disasters are well managed. This is the definitive review of technical knowledge about trauma risk according to type of emergency, demographics, social and cultural variables, prevention, mitigation, and treatment-illustrated by excellent case studies. It is a fascinating book, which will serve as AN AUTHORITATIVE SOURCE OF INFORMATION ON THE PSYCHOSOCIAL IMPACT OF TERRORISM for many years to come."
MD, MPH, Senior Policy Advisor, Office of Terrorism Preparedness & Emergency Response, Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC), Washington, DC
