The book argues that one key to reducing terrorism may be to understand why individuals join terror groups, and to find ways to meet their needs through alternatives to discourage membership in terrorist organizations. Hence, it looks at only offensive measures as incompetent to reduce terrorism. Therefore, it introduces the hierarchy of needs framework to capture all previous pieces of explanations on why individuals join terror groups under one big umbrella.
