We see their faces on television, on the Internet, and in newspapers, but what do we really know about the people we call terrorists? Where do they live? What are their families and homes like? What are their motives? Who Are the Terrorists? strives to answer these questions and more while allowing readers to draw their own conclusions. By examining famous individual terrorists, notorious terrorist groups, and the statistics that describe them, the reader will find that terrorists are not all of the same religion, race, or creed. Instead, we discover, the word "terrorist" is used to describe people pf radically different backgrounds, with diverse methods and goals for shaping the world to their own specifications.
