PEACE AND WAR: Between Islam and Neojihadist Ideology, Values and Strategies.
PEACE AND WAR presents a critical analysis of the phenomenon of neojihadism. The book presents neojihadism as a 21st century extremist and radical movement that engages in the distortion of the meaning of Jihad as understood in mainstream Islam. The book examines the fundamental processes of ideological extremism, the meaning and scope of terrorism, the basic processes involved in neojihadist radicalisation and the way in which globalisation forces have contributed to shaping neojihadism as a typically novel 21st century phenomenon. Peace and War is therefore an important reading for anyone interested in understanding the intersection between neojihadism and other similar violent new religious movements, and the various dimensions of ideological radicalisation and terrorism as important challenges to contemporary peace and international relations.
