Publisher: Ohio State University. Mershon Center for International Security Studies
Abstract: Several cultures have encouraged the formation of cadres that honor self destruction in order to destroy others: the list includes the Assassins of medieval West Asia, the “Kamikaze” Japanese pilots of World War II, and the Arab suicide bombers today. What common denominators exist between them? What motivates them: tradition or track record? What defenses exist against them?
