Ms. Stern talked about her book, Terror in the Name of God: Why Religious Militants Kill, published by HarperCollins. She described the four years during which she interviewed extremist members of three religions around the world: Christians, Jews, and Muslims. Traveling extensively, she discovered that the Islamic jihadi in the mountains of Pakistan and the Christian fundamentalist bomber in Oklahoma have much in common. She explained how terrorist organizations are formed by opportunistic leaders who use religion as both motivation and justification to recruit the disenfranchised. She described how moral fervor is transformed into sophisticated organizations that strive for money, power, and attention. close
