This book is an analysis of the personality who is the backbone of most extreme political and religious groups including those who spawn the terrorist. The book applies contemporary psychological constructs to explain why people join extreme social groups ranging from the fanatics in Khomeini's Iran, ultra-conservative Republican parties in America, and Moslem terrorist organizations in the Middle East and Afghanistan As contrasted with other current books on terrorism that place the cause of terrorism in nebulous cultural concepts or tribal artifacts, I have written a psychosocial work that profiles the complete personality of this person and reveals how his Everyman commonness contains the telltale signs of his eventual destructiveness.
