The psychology of counter terrorism

This book I have read as part of my studies into terrorism whilst I was at the University of East London.

Its a fantastic read for anyone interested into trying to understand why some people commit acts of terrorism and how law enforcement can counter them using psychology.

There have been many discussions on social media over the past couple of days on this issue. People find it hard to understand that on most occasions these people committing acts of unspeakable horror are in fact very regular people and not as is most peoples opinion 'mad'.

Andrew Silke is the Field Leader for Criminology and the Director of Terrorism Studies at the University of East London. He is author of several books and over 100 articles on terrorism.
