So far, not many studies have focused on lone wolves' terrorism. Even fewer would grasp this phenomenon in broader political, historical, and psychological perspectives. Even a smaller number of these would then refer to terrorism understood as a single issue in its anti-choice version. The present study is one of these few.
It thoroughly discusses the ideological and social foundations of this type of terrorism, its methods and strategies, as well as possible psychological incentives and sources of triggering violence, both of ideological and political nature. The book also describes the wolves' actions and the influence on these actions by the Army of God - an intentionally disorganized ideological structure based on the leaderless resistance model.
