    "The link is to a UNESCO page on preventing violent extremism. The page has some interesting content yet doesn't actually address methods of prevention in any detailed manner."

    "This is a very tough, deeply misunderstood topic I think. The writing on this was pretty solid, and it conveyed some good items...but I feel like this is not nearly in depth enough. It's a solid article, but little more than beginner's reading. "

    "This book helped me a lot with understanding the mind of those prone to radicalization. However, I find this book is almost too sympathetic - it takes some excesses in understanding the subjects within, to the point where it almost comes off as apologetic. Let me be clear, this is NOT a defense of extremism by any stretch - but I feel Gambetta and Hertog go a little too far to ascribe radical ideology to solely educational and social position - almost to the point of downplaying the input of radical ideas themselves. Still, this is worth reading."
