Pressestimmen"Dr. Berko brings to her book a fascinating, personal perspective on suicidal terror. With sensitivity and a genuine cultural understanding, as the daughter of a Jewish family of refugees from Iraq, combined with great expertise in the subject of terror - Berko has written an astounding document - a penetrating look into the souls of the suicide bombers and their dispatchers. It documents meetings she held with terrorists. This is a conversation with the dead, the same living bombs that because of a mishap did not actualize their desire to murder." - GEORGE P. FLETCHER, COLUMBIA UNIVERSITY, AND AUTHOR OF ROMANTICS AT WAR: GLORY AND GUILT IN THE AGE OF TERRORISM "The book, in short, is highly recommended for all those in the West who are trying to understand the phenomenon of suicide bombings and the ever-increasing threat of Islamic fundamentalism." - KHALED ABU TOAMEH, VETERAN REPORTER AND COMMENTATOR ON PALESTINIAN AFFAIRS AND CORRESPONDENT, THE JERUSALEM POST"
