Does anyone know from what publication is this Chapter nr 8?

Googled author's name and the RAND website has an authors page and the following papers - which I suggest is where the reprint comes from:

Aptitude for Destruction, Vol. 1: Organizational Learning in Terrorist Groups and Its Implications for Combating Terrorism, Brian A. Jackson, RAND Corporation, 2005

Aptitude for Destruction, Vol. 2: Case Studies of Organizational Learning in Five Terrorist Groups, Brian A. Jackson et al., RAND Corporation, 2005

I've read several RAND papers, but not these two, nor the paper (reprint) quoted. Later today perhaps.
