For five years, Jessica Stein interviewed extremist members of three religions around the world: Christians, Jews, and Muslims. Based on her vast research, Stern lucidly explains how terrorist organizations are formed by opportunistic leaders who--using religion as both motivation and justification-recruit the disenfranchised. She depicts how moral fervor is transformed into sophisticated organizations that strive for money, power, or attention and suggests how terrorism might most effectively be countered.
