'Rehabilitation efforts have proved to be equally complex, involving more than a sermon from an appropriate imam pointing out the error of the subject's ways. Rehabilitation requires intense interaction at the individual level and includes religious guidance, psychological counseling, financial assistance, improving education, family and community engagement, even marriage, all aimed at achieving a permanent transformation of behavior. The chapters compiled by Rohan Gunaratna and Sabariah M. Hussin suggest common principles but illustrate diverse approaches. What is appropriate and works in one society might not be suitable in another...As should be apparent from the reflections in this foreword, readers will have much to think about as they read this important volume.' - Brian Michael Jenkins, Senior Adviser to the President of the RAND Corporation, US 'These two edited volumes (Deradicalisation and terrorist rehabilitation, and International case studies of terrorist rehabilitation) are therefore helpful, in that they provide those charged with implementing our counterterrorism programmes with a guide-a selection of lessons learned, both positive and negative, drawn from an impressively broad range of contexts.' - David H. Ucko, Assoc. Proffessor, National Defense University, USA
