Psychological Undercurrents of History, Volume II: Terror and Apocalypse explores the psychology of terrorism, apocalyptic violence, and trauma. What impels people to murder civilians with righteous impunity? How can people murder without remorse? What comprise the apocalyptic imagination and fantasies of cataclysmic destruction? The authors of this volume examine these questions in light of recent events, both to understand the phenomenon called terrorism, and the violence and madness pervading the nightmare of history.
