Synopsis

Using psychological theory and the author's direct experience working with at-risk youth, this book answers the questions on the minds of anyone shocked and appalled by the events of the Boston Marathon bombings. * Identifies the various factors and influences that drove two young men who were described by many who knew them to be "nice, normal people" to commit premeditated acts of violence * Addresses recent events in other countries with similarly aged and seemingly unthreatening young adults and teens as perpetrators of attacks * Provides an appendix containing sources for further research, including books, news articles, links to journal articles, and websites of research organizations * Includes a foreword by Michael Lamport Commons, PhD, Harvard Medical School
