This book challenges basic assumptions about what motivates human bombs, giving us clues about how best to respond. Joining the jihad does not appear to be an explicit decision. Rather, beliefs are acquired as part of a social process, and the willingness to fight follows. Rational or not, commitment to jihad is rarely the product of raw calculation. This means that current counterterror strategy is fundamentally flawed, resting as it does upon the notion of deterrence - that the use or threat of force can dissuade militants from taking action. Most militants forge loyalties that are difficult to betray, and many would prefer to fight to the death. -- The Chronicle of Higher Education Turkish membership in the European Union (EU) holds the potential to democratize Turkey dramatically, along the lines of the Copenhagen Criteria (stability of institutions guaranteeing democracy, the rule of law, human rights, and respect for and protection of minorities) and thus help solve Turkey's longstanding Kurdish problem. Turkish accession would also put the lie to the clash of civilizations thesis of inevitable Armageddon between the Christian West and Islamic East, or as this study puts it, would 'potentially create a bridge between Europe and the wider Muslim world. -- Michale M. Gunter, Middle East Journal
