Using material from previously unpublished interviews and documents, this book explores the experience of active involvement in terrorism. It aims to identify and describe the general features of the psychology of membership of a terrorist group and to address the broader context of terrorism, including its effects on family life and the rest of society. Episodes are drawn from European and Islamic material and are used to illustrate the experience of the terrorists' own lives as well as those affected by their actions. Especially horrifying are the accounts of the attempted assassination of Bernadette Devlin and her family, and Nezar Hindawi's extremely cold-blooded plan to "detonate" an El-Al aeorplane using his pregnant girlfriend as the suitcase bomb carrier. Maxwell Taylor is the author of "The Terrorist" and "The Fanatics".
