What are the factors that lead some individuals to become terrorists? In this book, a psychiatrist and psychoanalyst examines case histories of terrorism and reveals how radicalized youths living next door can become dangerous homegrown terrorists.


* Presents a detailed study of 20 homegrown terrorists' life situations and psychodynamics that will not only answer questions for general readers, such as "What were the two brothers behind the Boston Marathon bombings really like?" but also supply psychiatrists, psychologists, law enforcement officers, and homeland security experts with invaluable insights for interviewing possible homegrown terrorists

* Pinpoints reasons for radicalization among young people at a vulnerable, "in-between" period in their lives, such as conflicts with parents, disagreement with their parents' views about religion, or the perception that they are hypocritical

* Covers acts of domestic terrorism in the 20th century ranging from the activities of the Weather Underground group in the 1970s to Timothy McVeigh's truck bombing of the Federal Building in Oklahoma City in 1995 to the Boston Marathon bombings of 2013

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Olsson, a retired psychiatrist and psychoanalyst with 37 years of experience, deciphers the complexities of these mass murder-minded killers. He structures his enlightening book with a broad enough scope, written in clear terms, to be mind-opening." - The Keene Sentinel
"It is a highly insightful analysis." - Perspectives on Terrorism
"This very scholarly, easy to read, and outstanding book should be required reading in colleges and certainly is a basic and significant text for psychoanalysts seeking to understand terrorism. I highly recommend it." - Psychodynamic Psychiatry
