Taking this understanding of what he calls human evil, he then proposes a hawkish campaign that ultimately emphasizes peace rather than irrational fear." "By deeming suicide bombing and terrorism necessary subjects in the study of psychology, Charny presents yet another weapon in the war against terrorism - a war he believes will only escalate without drastic action. Ultimately, he calls for a 'worldwide campaign for life' led by religious and secular leaders across the globe. He concludes the book with a vignette from Islamic culture that speaks nobly to furthering peace and life."--BOOK JACKET." ;
