'A groundbreaking study ... a masterclass in how to do intellectual history, and one that nobody with an interest in radical Islam should miss' Tom Holland, New Statesman
'Readers looking for a rigorous but lucid account of Islamic State's ideas will be well-served by Maher's book ... the first of its kind' Kyle W. Orton, Wall Street Journal
No topic has gripped the public imagination so dramatically as the spectre of global jihadism. While much has been said about the way jihadists behave, their ideology remains poorly understood. Shiraz Maher charts the intellectual underpinnings of salafi-jihadism from its origins in the mountains of the Hindu Kush to the jihadist insurgencies of the 1990s and the 9/11 wars. His ground-breaking introduction to salafi-jihadism recalibrates our understanding of the ideas underpinning one of the most destructive political philosophies of our time.
'Magisterial ... Essential reading' Robin Yassin-Kassab, The National
'Shiraz Maher, a leading authority on contemporary Islamic extremism, traces the evolution of the key ideas behind one of the most significant religious and political movements of our time. Comprehensive, important and timely' Jason Burke, author of Al-Qaeda
'A work of genuine interest and originality ... indispensable' David Patrikarakos, Literary Review

The rest of the book dealt with themes I was already familiar with have studied Islamism. This is a an excellent introduction to a highly nuanced and very deep subject and is a good primer for further research.
Like all good research in this field something Shiraz does extremely well is he manages to separate the ideology of the jihadis from the ideology of quietist and political salafis and from normative muslims. I would recommend this to anyone interested in extremsim, terrorism or islam.
This expanded my knowledge and gave me a launchpad for further in-depth study.
The book can get quite technical when it comes to Islamic teachings and words/phrases and for those including myself not familiar with the religion it can become complicated reading this book. That being said the author does try to explain as much as is possible the origins and meanings of particular words.
Overall this is an interesting book, probably useful to those in academia but still worthwhile as a read for those with an interest in these groups and what makes them act the way they do.
