In this compelling book, Ami Pedahzur investigates the root causes of suicide terrorism and its rapid proliferation in recent years.
Drawing on a variety of sources, Suicide Terrorism explores the use of human bombs in Lebanon, Israel, Sri Lanka, Turkey, Chechnya and Iraq and the ostentatious attacks of Al-Qaeda and the global jihad.
It is the only book to offer such an in-depth, up-to-date, cross-cultural analysis of suicide terrorism in the twenty-first century.
