The Real Lives of Islamic Radicals
Why does someone become an Islamic radical? What are his deepest beliefs? Is there any hope he can be turned away from terrorism? Former federal prosecutor and congressional investigator Kenneth Ballen, author of Terrorists in Love, spent five years interviewing more than 100 extremists throughout the Muslim world and shares the lives of six of them, unveiling the motivations behind their deadly missions and delivering a startling new thesis about what drives them to violence. Presented by the Town Hall Center for Civic Life with Elliott Bay Book Company. Series media sponsorship provided by PubliCola.
