Apocalyptic Faith and Political Violence : Prophets of Terror Paperback / softback


This study examines the functional relationship between millenarian-inspired terrorism and the process of political change.

Through an exhaustive investigation of late Twentieth-century movements, Aum Shinrikyo, Sendero Luminoso and Hezbollah, it concludes that in each case, apocalyptic expectations performed a significant group mobilization, leadership and therapeutic function.
