Destructive and Terrorist Cults: A New Kind of Slavery: Leaders, Followers, and Mind Manipulation
By Masoud Banisadr

To Understand Terrorist/Destructive Cults, their leaders, how they recruit, manipulate minds of their victims, changing them from a normal person into a human bomb. Who are the victims and why they fall in the trap of Terrorist/Destructive leaders?

A compelling yet optimistic account of ideological entrapment, setting out a prescient and persuasive new theoretical framework that advances our understanding of destructive and terrorist cults and how they can be avoided and ultimately transcended.

Once in a while, only occasionally in a generation perhaps, a writer will come along with new insights and ways to explain a common phenomenon and it just takes your breath away! You wonder – why didn’t I think about it like this before?
