Terrorist groups mobilize supporters and legitimize and justify their acts of violence through the use of ideology. In the case of terrorism, ideology is transformed into a system of ideas that promotes the use of violence to bring about their desired societal change. In The Ideological War on Terror: Worldwide Strategies for Counter-Terrorism (Routledge, $145/$47.75, 285 pages), edited by Anne Aldis and Graeme P. Herd, scholars use case studies to formulate a strategy they call "counter ideological support for terrorism" (CIST).
