Product description

Review

'Countering Al-Qaeda in London should be required reading for policymakers, police and security agencies, and European and American citizens concerned about domestic security as well as religious pluralism and civil liberties. No one more qualified than Robert Lambert, a former Scotland Yard senior police official and today a university scholar, to write this incisive and incisive critical study.' - --Professor John L. Esposito, Georgetown University, and author of The Future of Islam and Islamophobia and the Challenge of Pluralism in the 21st Century

'Illuminating, wise and profound.' --Peter Oborne, The Daily Telegraph

'Lambert's work is remarkable for his consistently thoughtful, de-escalatory and grounded approach. As a police officer, he built relationships with Muslims which allowed him to understand the complexity of what drives people to extreme measures. As a scholar he has been a nuanced voice of moderation, with the added gravitas of direct experience. His work was and is groundbreaking, forging a path that more and more are bound to follow.' - --Professor Marie Breen-Smyth, Co-Director of the Centre for International Intervention, University of Surrey

About the Author

Robert Lambert is an academic with a police career in counter-terrorism. Post 9/11 he and a colleague were concerned that the war on terror was a counter-productive response to al-Qaeda that alienated Muslims and they established the Muslim Contact Unit that instead worked empathetically and in partnership with London Muslims. For the bulk of his police service (1977-2007) Lambert worked in counter-terrorism. In June 2008 he was awarded an MBE for his police service.
