This work investigates the life, ideas, motivations, impact, and execution of Abdul Aziz, also known as Imam Samudra, the mastermind behind the October 2002 suicide bomber attacks at two nightclubs in the Bali tourist district of Kuta, which killed 202 people. The book examines his motivations for planning the attacks, highlighting connections between Imam Samudra, the Darul Islam movement, and the JemaAEah Islamiyah. The book pays special attention to factors in his personality driving his ideology of global jihadism and revenge, and even presents evidence of narcissistic personality.
