  1. I am grateful for comments from Max Taylor on an earlier draft of this paper.

  1. This paper is developed from some earlier work, specifically arguments presented in J. Horgan, ‘Leaving Terrorism Behind’, in A. Silke (Ed.), Terrorists, victims, society (London: John Wiley & Sons, Ltd., 2003), and J. Horgan, The psychology of terrorism (London: Routledge, 2005a). This chapter also serves as a preliminary discussion point for a Research Fellowship project on disengagement, sponsored by the Airey Neave Trust in mid - 2006, which the author has recently begun in order to test the hypotheses developed in these discussions. The results of this research will be published in J. Horgan (2009), Walking Away from Terrorism: Accounts of Disengagement from Radical and Extremist Movements, London: Routledge.
