This new edition of John Horgan's critically acclaimed book is fully revised and expanded. The book presents a critical analysis of our existing knowledge and understanding of terrorist psychology. Despite the on-going search for a terrorist pathology, the most insightful and evidence-based research to date not only illustrates the lack of any identifiable psychopathology in terrorists, but demonstrates how frighteningly 'normal' and unremarkable in psychological terms are those who engage in terrorist activity. By producing a clearer map of the processes that impinge upon the individual terrorist, a different type of terrorist psychology emerges, one which has clearer implications for efforts at countering and disrupting violent extremism in today's world. In this 2nd edition, Horgan further develops his approach to the arc of terrorism by delving deeper into his IED model of Involvement, Engagement and Disengagement – the three phases of terrorism experienced by every single terrorist. Drawing on new and exciting research from the past decade, with new details from interviews with terrorists ranging from al-Qaeda to left-wing revolutionaries, biographies and autobiographies of former terrorists, and insights from historic and contemporary terrorist attacks since 2005, Horgan presents a fully revised and expanded edition of his signature text. This new edition of The Psychology of Terrorism will be essential reading for students of terrorism and political violence, and counterterrorism studies, and recommended for forensic psychology, criminology, international security and IR in general.

The psychology of terrorism, in its most basic form, is about fear. Although academics continue to debate the meaning of terrorism, the end result for victims of terrorism is very often fear and terror. The purposes of this book are to unpack the complexity of terrorism fears and to present a new paradigm for understanding the psychology of terrorism. As such, this book presents empirical and theoretical frameworks for understanding fear as a dynamic process that motivates and affects people on a myriad of levels.

There are many books published that cover social psychology and violence and aggression, including political violence. Few books, however, establish the mind-set of the terrorist as individual. This includes asking into account personal experience, psychological make-up, personal background, and religious ideology for the purposes of understanding ideological and tactical objectives and profiling terrorists to counter terrorist threats. The Psychology of Terrorists examines the personality profile of the individual and breaks out the psychology of terrorists into four distinct profiles which are outlined and analyzed in great detail. While the question of the origins and triggers of human violence has intrigued students of human behavior at least since the earliest days of written history, much of the literature on the specific types of terrorists—featured in this book—is sparse. The information provided is based on the author’s extensive experience, research, consultations, and first-hand interviews. Commonly, terrorists are seen as psychopathic or having a religious or political cause. Author Raymond Hamden presents a unique look at terrorists as individuals with personal motives as well as those of principle. The book presents an analysis of terrorists without prejudice or bias for any political, religious, nationality, creed, or race. Too many times the world see experts focus on issues that are based on their own prejudices or biases. Although there is criticism on the reliability of profiling, this research demonstrates validity and reliability with the unique and holistic look at terrorist psychology. It is vital to try to understand terrorist motivations to find a solution to terrorist activities the acts of terrorism themselves. This can only be achieved by "knowing" the terrorists’ psychological character looking at the individual terrorist, taking into account personal experience, psychological make-up, background, and religious ideology. The Psychology of Terrorists will be a welcome addition to psychologists, terrorism researchers, criminal profilers, investigators and intelligence professionals, counter- and anti-terrorism experts, as well as military, security and law enforcement professionals tasked with protecting individuals from acts of terrorism.
