Killer on the Loose, The True Story of Serial Killer Raymond Lee Stewart Lowest new price: $71.00
Lowest used price: $23.94
List price: $9.95
Author: Greg Kelly
Brand: Brand: Paperboy Pr

In one week, Raymond Lee Stewart went on a killing spree that left four people dead in Rockford, Illinois and two people dead in Beloit, Wisconsin. The murders terrified both communities. He was captured with the help of an F.B.I. profiler.

Just when Rockford and Beloit residents thought it was safe to go out again, Raymond Lee Stewart made a daring escape from jail. Once again, the community was terrified. He was re-captured after a two hour manhunt.

Greg Kelly was 10 years old at the time and living in Rockford. For Kelly, this was the boogeyman of his childhood. Fifteen years after the murders and the daring escape, Kelly was interviewing Raymond Lee Stewart as part of his job as Assignment Editor for WGN news in Chicago.

The book is a look at how the events in this story affected the lives of the people who were involved; the sister of the killer who claims that years of abuse led Stewart to his murderous path, the mother of one of the victims who forgave the killer and fought to get him off death row, the son of a victim who turned into an alcoholic after his father's murder, the police officer who shot and helped capture Stewart during his 1982 escape and an F.B.I. profiler who helped local authorities catch the killer.

What did happen in Chicago during August 1968 when the Democratic Party staged its Convention to nominate a candidate for President and a series of confrontations-vital, often raw, at times complex -erupted between demonstrating citizens and police and Guardsmen, the Democrats among themselves, and the black community, and the turbulent Convention melee? Novelist John Schultz, covering the Convention as reporter for Evergreen Review, observed almost every confrontation in the parks, streets, at the Hilton Hotel and the International Amphitheater for ten days and nights. No One Was Killed is his clear, impassioned history of what he saw and felt.

Walking Away from Terrorism: Accounts of Disengagement from Radical and Extremist Movements (Political Violence)

Walking Away from Terrorism: Accounts of Disengagement from Radical and Extremist Movements (Political Violence) Lowest new price: $32.98
Lowest used price: $8.50
List price: $45.95
Author: John G. Horgan
Brand: Routledge

This accessible new book looks at how and why individuals leave terrorist movements, and considers the lessons and implications that emerge from this process.

Focusing on the tipping points for disengagement from groups such as Al Qaeda, the IRA and the UVF, this volume is informed by the dramatic and sometimes extraordinary accounts that the terrorists themselves offered to the author about why they left terrorism behind. 

The book examines three major issues:

  • what we currently know about de-radicalisation and disengagement
  • how discussions with terrorists about their experiences of disengagement can show how exit routes come about, and how they then fare as ‘ex-terrorists’ away from the structures that protected them
  • what the implications of these findings are for law-enforcement officers, policy-makers and civil society on a global scale.

Concluding with a series of thought-provoking yet controversial suggestions for future efforts at controlling terrorist behaviour, Walking Away From Terrorism provides an comprehensive introduction to disengagement and de-radicalisation and offers policymakers a series of considerations for the development of counter-radicalization and de-radicalisation processes.

This book will be essential reading for students of terrorism and political violence, war and conflict studies, security studies and political psychology.

John Horgan is Director of the International Center for the Study of Terrorism at the Pennsylvania State University. He is one of the world's leading experts on terrorist psychology, and has authored over 50 publications in this field; recent books include the The Psychology of Terrorism (Routledge 2005) and Leaving Terrorism Behind (co-edited, Routledge 2008)
