TRENTON, N.J., April 22, 2015 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- In an increasingly volatile and violent world it's important to understand the parallels between radical jihadists and destructive cults. Both categories of extremists are typically totalitarian and use similar techniques to recruit and retain members. Cults and jihadist groups alike, such as ISIS, use social media effectively for recruitment. What can be done to de-radicalize or deprogram individuals recruited by such groups? How can people recover after they leave? These questions and many more are answered in the book Cults Inside Out: How People Get In and Can Get Out, by Rick Alan Ross. Ross has provided expert court testimony, worked with law enforcement and facilitated more than 500 interventions around the world. He knows firsthand the tactics used by totalitarian groups to control and manipulate people and some of the most effective methods to unlock undue influence.

Cults Inside Out includes a history of groups called "cults." By understanding that history we can better understand and contextualize the problems we have today with violent authoritarian Jihadist groups and destructive cults. Ross explains the dynamics of such groups and his book reflects the diversity of the present day cult phenomenon, which includes Jihadist terrorist organizations such as al-Qaeda.
