About the Author

Margo Kitts is a professor of humanities and religious studies at Hawai'i Pacific University.


"Why would people want to kill themselves on behalf of God? Behind the troubling scenes of suicide bombers and burning monks are complex religious histories of martyrdom. This remarkable collection of authoritative essays covers all aspects of this perplexing topic in every religious tradition, ranging from early history to the present. This important volume forces us to think anew about the awesome power of the religious imagination."-Mark Juergensmeyer, author of Terror in the Mind of God: The Global Rise of Religious Violence
