This book handles terrorism in its broad outlines first, and then proceeded to highlight such aspects as the organizational structure of terrorist groups, their psychology and group dynamics, financing, and recruitment. Along with each topic, the question of how to counter terrorist activities is addressed. Some of the topics highlighted in this publication are: the causes of terrorism; major ideologies motivating terrorism and main characteristics of terrorism; recruitment methods of terrorist organizations; and psychology of terrorists and profile of suicide bombers. Terrorism has gained a global dimension, and it is impossible to imagine successful counter-terrorism unless true and open international cooperation is realized. Organizational and Psychological Aspects of Terrorism is one example of sharing expertise and lessons learned.
