My Life is a Weapon: A Modern History of Suicide Bombing


In many cases, these modern day martyrs are well educated young adults who turned themselves into human bombs ready to exact revenge on a powerful enemy. In this book, the author argues that popular views of suicide bombers — ascrazed fanatics or brainwashed automatons — fall short of the mark. In manycases these modern-day martyrs are well-educated young adults who are motivatedmore by how they expect to be remembered — as heroic figures — than byreligion-infused visions of a blissful life to come.
