This study examines the functional relationship between millenarian-inspired terrorism and the process of political change. Through an exhaustive investigation of late twentieth-century movements - Aum Shinrikyo, Sendero Luminoso, and Hezbollah - it concludes that in each case, apocalyptic expectations performed a significant group mobilization, leadership and therapeutic function.
