Book description

In recent years, the world order has been rocked by an explosive, unexpected and extraordinary phenomenon: political Islam. Beginning in the early 1970s, militants revolted against the regimes in power across the Muslim world and exacerbated political conflicts internationally. Their jihad — or “Holy Struggle” — aimed to establish a global Islamic state based solely on a strict interpretation of the Qur’an. Jihad is the first comprehensive attempt to follow the history and spread of this new political-religious phenomenon today, from the rise of Al Qaeda to the explosion of support for Hamas, Hezbollah and Islamic jihad in the wake of the Second Palestinian Intifada. It is the definitive work on what the West has called “Islamic Fundamentalism”, and offers the boldest assessment of its past, its present, and where it might lead in the future. Jihad is vital reading for everyone concerned with the state of the world today.
