The Cultic Dimension Of Terrorist Radicalisation



Whenever there is a terrorist attack, people want to know first, who did it, and secondly why they did it. There is almost a sense, that for whatever reason, terrorist attacks can be explained with a single motive. Though much research has been done on cults outside terrorism studies, the role played by a cultic mindset and behaviour in terrorist violence has been neglected.
