Jihadist Deradicalization : The Hamas and Gama'a Movements - (Hardcover)
about this item
Radicalization and deradicalization of individuals and groups constitutes one of the leading areas of interest in the field of counter-terrorism studies, and yet it is one of the least understood. This book presents an interdisciplinary approach to the complex web of issues and problems driving these groups. To demonstrate concepts, the book examines two radical groups in order to draw links that aid understanding: Hamas, which has adhered to a violent moral code, and Gama’a, which has deradicalized. This book presents a fascinating and useful look at the conditions that engender terrorist groups, and how to identify and seize opportunities to promote the disbanding of such groups.
