Sri Lanka, Christchurch, Aleppo – only three of nearly 50 terror attacks that happened so far in 2019. Some reached the media, most don´t. The face of terror is ubiquitous and has many names, e.g. IS, Taliban, Al Qaida, Boko Haram. It is – unfortunately – a new reality everyone has to deal with. Health professionals are often the first to handle the consequences of terrorist attacks. Joshua Shemer and Yehuda Shoenfeld, two israelic clinicians, bring together pragmatic knowledge, useful guidance and practical experience for this group to this topic in their book „Terror and Medicine“.
