Product description

Review

A persuasive and stimulating book. -- Martin Amis

All who glibly generalise about the no-man's-land between terrorism and multiculturalism should read this articulate and impassioned book. -- Simon Jenkins, Sunday Times

Captivating, and terrifyingly honest ... a wake-up call to
monocultural Britain, it takes you into the mind of young fundamentalists,
exposing places in which the old notion of being British is defunct.
-- Observer

Husain's account is not sensationalist, tending more to
understatement than to hyperbole ... A complete eye-opener. -- David Aaronovitch, The Times

Insightful and gripping -- Sunday Times

About the Author

Ed Husain was an Islamist radical for five years in his late teens and early twenties. Having rejected extremism he travelled widely in the Middle East and worked for the British Council in Syria and Saudi Arabia. Husain received wide and various acclaim for The Islamist, which was shortlisted for the Orwell Prize for political writing and the PEN/Ackerley Prize for literary autobiography, amongst others. He is a co-founder of the Quillium Foundation, Britain's first Muslim counter extremism think tank. He lives in London with his wife and daughter.
