Responding directly to the events of September 11, 2001, an outstanding interdisciplinary group of academics, clinicians, and activists from around the world united to produce this clear exploration of terrorism. Contributors, including Pulitzer Prize-winner Dr. John E. Mack, present an enormous range of terror-related factors in this important multivolume set. Following a foreword by Professor Klaus Schwab, president and founder of the World Economic Forum, chapters address terror and violence perpetrated by children, compare terrorists to cultists, and separate the fact, fiction, and hysteria surrounding bioterrorism.

Other topics include:
•Historical contexts
•Group dynamics
•Social and behavioral issues
•Psychological and psychopathological issues
•Evolutionary issues
•Forensics
Also presented are global perspectives on issues such as:
•Understanding and empathy
•Bias, prejudice, and racism
•Hate
•Sexism

Additional subjects include state terrorism, countering international terrorism using perspectives from international psychology, and the role of resilience in terror’s aftermath. Forged with a combination of talents and viewpoints rarely seen in the worlds of academia and activism, these volumes advance knowledge and understanding as a framework for considering responses to terrorism.
