Jihadist Threat : The Re-Conquest of the West? (Hardcover) (Paul Moorcraft)
about this item
This timely and controversial book examines the international and domestic threats to the West from jihadism. It connects the dots of this Islamic fundamentalist movement throughout the Middle East, Asia, and Africa, explaining what the movement means for the West, in particular Britain, but also continental Europe and the United States. After briefly tracing the origins of jihadism from the time of the prophet Muhammad to the present, The Jihadist Threat analyzes the fall-out from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and how these conflicts fueled the rise of the self-styled Islamic State and other terrorist groups. The book also examines the extent to which these groups pose a threat to Western society and concludes with suggestions for defeating this existential threat to the Western way of life.
