The twisted metal sheets of shattered Israeli buses, the Twin
Towers carnage, the attacks on the London Underground, the blood flowing in
the streets of Kabul and the markets of Baghdad Who are the youths who sacrifice
their lives and kill countless innocent bystanders on an almost daily basis
in Afghanistan, Iraq, and Pakistan? Why do they commit these acts? Who encourages
them? Which armed groups send them out on their missions? In order to answer
these pressing questions, this book explains the origins and development of
suicide terrorism; deciphers ideas that distort reality and turn a killer into
a hero and a martyr; highlights the political, economic, and cultural circumstances
that help terrorist groups and promote the recruitment of kamikazes. Moreover,
the book also unveils the "black box" of personal experiences, motivations,
and emotions that induce suicide bombers to annihilate themselves and others.
