Talking to the Enemy : Violent Extremism, Sacred Values, and What it Means to Be Human Paperback
by Scott Atran
Scott Atran has spent years talking to terrorists - from Gaza and Afghanistan, to Indonesia and Europe.
Here he argues persuasively that to understand religious violence we need to consider terrorists' close relationships, with family and friends, as much as the causes they espouse.
He delivers a fascinating journey into the mindsets of radicalised people in the twenty-first century, and deep insights into the history of all religions.
