The New Frontiers of Jihad : Radical Islam in Europe, Hardback

The New Frontiers of Jihad : Radical Islam in Europe Hardback



Following the terrorist attacks on London and Madrid, radical Islam is presumed to be an increasingly potent force in Europe.

Yet beneath the media hysteria, very little is actually known about it.

What radical movements are there? How do they operate? What is driving them? Who are their recruits? What is their relationship, if any, to Al Qaeda? Alison Pargeter has spent three years interviewing radical Islamists throughout Europe to find answers to these questions.

She examines how radical ideology travels from East to West, and how the two contexts shape each other.

She finds that contrary to what some analysts have claimed, the European Muslim community has not become radicalised en masse.

What has happened is that in a globalised world, Middle Eastern power struggles are now being played out in the mosques of Birmingham, Paris and Milan.

This is a must-read book for anyone who wants to know the real story of the jihad which has apparently arrived in our back yard.
