The book is the first of its kind empirical study of terrorists based in Bangladesh focusing on the process of radicalization they underwent, the motivations they fostered, the ideology they held and pursued along with youth vulnerabilities which lead them to the path of violence adoption. It has been written based on the data collected from 51 terrorist suspects, 14 family members, 11 Law enforcement officials and 15 experts of various disciplines along with secondary data.

The book is based on the incidence of terrorism that takes on a politico-religious nature in the country of Bangladesh and attempts to understand which factors play significant roles in developing violent singular identities and motivations channelled towards radical change in social structure. What it looks into are three aspects assessing the indoctrination process, the vulnerable youth and vulnerability of regions to extremist identities; the reasoning as provided by extremists themselves on their involvement with violent acts and also the influence of the recruiter-recruit dynamic which facilitates involvement in terrorist organizations within the Bangladeshi context.
