Written for threat assessment professionals in the post-9/11 era, this timely book will help you understand the motivation to commit acts of terror, the thinking patterns common to many terrorists, the psychology of Muslim fundamentalists, methods for predicting the likelihood of chemical/biological attacks, and a great deal more. You’ll learn about hostage/barricade situations and the role of the crisis negotiator, including victim/perpetrator psychology and factors that indicate progress is being made in a crisis negotiation and factors that imply imminent lethality.

- biological, social, and psychological constructs that are important to understanding group violence
- the role of emotions in violence
- the history of chemical/biological weapons use from 1978 to the present, and methods of predicting the likelihood and origins of such attacks
- the importance of concurrent sequences in relation to chemical/biological attacks
- hostage/barricade situations, the makeup of crisis negotiation teams, and the role of the crisis negotiator
- hostage incident databases-where to find them, what they contain, and how they can be used effectively
- six different types of hostage takers and what strategies have the best chance of bringing each type’s crises to an end
- factors that indicate progress is being made in a crisis negotiation and factors that imply imminent lethality
