Adam Lankford - The Myth of Martyrdom

Friday, January 25, 2013 at 7:00 pm

Lankford, a University of Alabama criminal justice professor, studied the lives of numerous terrorists and argues that what drove these people to kill themselves was the same sort of depression, anxiety, or sense of failure that leads to nonpolitical suicides.
