Since the beginning of the new millennium, it seems that hardly a week goes by without the report of another suicide bomb attack somewhere in the world. People of all nationalities and faiths have been using suicide attacks to wage war or stage an extreme form of political protest for thousands of years in all regions of the world. This book will explore the long history of suicide attacks, their modern development, what turns people toward such extreme acts of violence, how suicide bombers are recruited and trained, and the effectiveness of suicide attacks as either political protest or combat tactic. Combining a popular, anecdotal, narrative history style with the pulse-racing immediacy and punch of journalism, this book educates, fascinates, and moves the reader.
