Summary
"Mohammed Sidique Khan was remembered for his charm with the girls, neat hairstyles and sensible jumpers. Shehzad Tanweer was a keen snooker player and cricketer. Germaine Lindsay was academically bright and seemed to have no quarrels with the wider world." "Along with Hasib Hussain, these men detonated bombs on three Underground trains and a London bus on the morning of 7 July 2005, killing themselves and 52 others, and injuring 700." "What is it that makes often intelligent young men (and women) violently kill themselves and others in the name of religion and politics?" "In Human Being to Human Bomb, psychiatrist and journalist Russell Razzaque looks at the motivations of the London bombers and the 9/11 attackers from a psychological point of view. He finds some startling similarities. Strict, distant fathers and obsessive personalities play a major role. They all felt more at home with the rational and the science-based than with the intuitive and emotional. Lacking a strong sense of identity, they all felt alienated from the West and grew to despise it." "Having experienced extremist Islam at university in London in 1989, Razzaque has watched this harrowing conversion from close quarters. Now, he presents for the first time the outlines of a test to detect vulnerability to jihadist thinking, a psychological device that could play a significant role in preventing atrocities such as those in, London, New York, Madrid and elsewhere." "Unique, personal and expertly researched, Human Being to Human Bomb Shines a light on the real psychology behind Islamic suicide bombing."--BOOK JACKET
