A Psychology Professor at Pepperdine University, Dr. Carlos Vazquez, has delivered new insight surrounding ISIS manipulation tactics in his debut book, Apocalyptic Psychology: ISIS' Secret Strategies.

The book presents the manipulation tactics, including the application of Apocalyptic Psychology, used to lure potential recruits for the radical terrorist group ISIS. The resource also provides theoretical framework that explains a radical apocalyptic believer and the three strategies that intend to satisfy the needs of a radical apocalyptic and how ISIS uses these techniques.

A recent study conducted by the United Stations Office of Counter-Terrorism found that the typical ISIS fighter lacked basic understanding of Islam and is most likely to be young and disadvantaged economically and educationally. This research undergirds Dr. Vazquez's theory for the framework of ISIS recruitment which includes: identity fragmentation and need for belonging, marginalization, dualism, paranoia and redemption/revenge.


"Dr. Carlos' book is a spot-on assessment of the challenges facing the U.S. & other Western nations in dealing with ISIS and other extremists.  Gaining a better understanding of what motivates them will help intelligence & law enforcement in their efforts to defeat this evil & apocalyptic vision of the future."

-D.W. Wilber, former Intelligence and Counterterrorism Officer with the CIA and DoD, and co-host of OPSEC Radio on the America Out Loud network
