'This is an illuminating, beautifully written study of Britain's most highly publicized, durable radical Islamic group, which established numerous sidewalk stalls to engage passers-by. Kenney spent five years interviewing many group members of different ranks, as well as deeply knowledgeable outsiders, including academics, journalists, and law enforcement officials. No academic has had a deeper contact with a radical Islamic group, a connection that will benefit readers greatly.' David Rapoport, Professor Emeritus, University of California, Los Angeles, and Founding and Chief Editor of Terrorism and Political Violence
'Based on probing ethnographic research, and skillfully using social network theory, this important and timely book explains how radicalization occurs in Western societies, how small but highly committed Islamist organizations persist and adapt under pressure, and why democratic governments struggle to counter domestic extremism.' Martha Crenshaw, Center for International Security and Cooperation, Stanford University, California
'Kenney spent years talking with members of al-Muhajiroun; he tells us where they came from and how and why they stayed or left. His brilliant and readable results will be required reading for anyone interested in radicalization and deradicalization: security officials, analysts, academics, and citizens who want to get behind the news.' Clark McCauley, Research Professor of Psychology, Bryn Mawr College, Pennsylvania
'Michael Kenney takes us on a journey into Islamist activism through meticulous field work, interviews, and participant observation. This unique investigation brings these militants to life and debunks many of our prejudices based on polemics with little foundation. Anyone interested in Islamist networks must read this book.' Marc Sageman, author of Turning to Political Violence
This is the first ethnographic study of al-Muhajiroun, a European activist network implicated in terrorist attacks and sending fighters to the Islamic State. Drawing on extensive field research, the author explores the motives of young Britons who joined al-Muhajiroun, how they radicalized, and the reasons many decided to leave.See all Product description
