"This is a good introduction to a very complex subject, and unlike many other books on militant Islam, it includes a wide

geographical focus and examines movements that are difficult to classify in traditional political science categories (e.g.,

al Qaeda) as well as others that have evolved into political parties in their respective locales (e.g., Hamas and

Hezbollah). The book takes the reader across Europe, Caucasus, Central Asia, and the Middle East to examine most

Islamist terrorist and radical groups. Moreover, Alaolmolki (Hiram College) provides sufficient historical background

and discussion of contemporary developments to enable readers to understand current militant tendencies in the

Muslim world. . . . Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates and above." -

"Alaolmolki (political science, Hiram College, Ohio) analyzes transnational militant Islam at domestic, regional and global levels, noting that the driving force in political violence cannot be isolated to a single source or ideology. Written for students and scholars interested in Islamic extremism, this volume examines the causes for the expansion of these movements such as the predominance of poverty and lack of democracy in Arab and Muslim nations, historic conflicts in the Middle East and Asia and interventions from the Western world. The author also discusses the shift in Islamic beliefs since 9/11, the consequences of the Iraqi invasion and the need for non-military solutions for extremist activity." - Reference & Research Book News
