Voices of Jihad : New Writings on Radical Islam (Hardcover) (Kamran Bokhari)
About this item
The 21st century has seen an unprecedented radicalization of Muslims across the world. In some cases, this has led to terror and violence. Yet as the West pours huge military resources into the ""war on terror,"" we still know very little about the ideology which drives the terrorists. Now, for the first time, Kamran Bokhari has made it possible to hear and to digest today's militant Islam in its own words. He presents a range of ideologues from across the globe, including Bin Laden's own deputy, Ayman Zawahari. Bokhari's carefully contextualized selection introduces us to radical Islamist thinking on a range of issues such as their perception of Western concepts of democracy, their skepticism towards the Middle East peace process and how to deal with the West. For anyone who wants to understand the phenomenon of contemporary militant Islam, or who wants to know what motivates terrorist thinking, this book is essential reading.
