Types of Terrorists book
Public opinion via media and political propaganda machines was glad to see terrorism as the inhumane vehicle of Arabs who just happened to be Muslim. Types of terrorism was a growing industry for political scientists and ¬behavioral scientists during the 1970s and 1980s. Many scholars in the military and private groups gained momentum seeking definition and strategies for terrorism and ¬counter-terrorism. Two more types of terrorism were added to the list submitted by Alex Schmid and Albert Jongman: international terrorism and transitional terrorism. In 1999, US intelligence analysis (Hudson) found four typologies for terrorists: nationalist-separatist, religious fundamentalist, new religious, and social revolutionary. A major understanding of members of terrorist cells is narcissistic entitlement syndrome (NES). Terrorists who experience NES often very quickly find themselves out of sync with the other cell members, whether they quit, are ostracized, or simply move among the leaders to deal with the disorder and its delusions of grandeur.
