A two part book on domestic terrorism Part one is an inside look at FBI operations in its most complex investigation, that of Ted Kaczynski the Unabomber. After sixteen years of traditional forensic investigation resulting in disappointing dead-ends the FBI brought in the authors from counterintelligence and they quickly moved from traditional methods to implementing psychological techniques which resulted in the capture of Kaczynski in just twenty four months. Interesting insights on the FBI's use of the print media to help in its investigation and also contending with the broadcast media's threat to undermine the investigation in its final moments. Part Two deals with the lessons learned in the investigation and how they apply to international terrorism. Includes a recently declassified and not-previously published psychological study of the top ten domestic terrorists.
The bombs were perfect. The metal he'd so painstakingly cast glimmered in the dim light of the cabin. The hickory wood on the flipper switch was smooth and well shaped. The chemical compound had been perfected, and the target selected. All that remained was to wrap them in heavy paper and add the addresses and the stamps. After a hiatus of over six years from his deadly mission, he was ready to remind them -- all of them, all the unconscious drones in the technological nightmare the country had become -- that he was still here, still dangerous, still watching them. And so worked the dark mind of the most elusive man in the history of the FBI. For sixteen years he stayed ahead of them. The old techniques in the Bureau just didn't work any more, at least for this kind of mind. It was time to change the rules and time to find the right type of people to change them. The book written by the people who changed the rules on the run takes you on the chase for the dark minds of Theodore Kaczynski, the Unabomber and Eric Rudolph. Dr Puckett, the clinical psychologist who played such a vital role in the capture of those men also peers into the mind of Timothy McVeigh to provide an analysis to better understand the mindset of the domestic terrorist.
