  • THE ROOTS OF RADICAL ISLAM

    From the first World Trade Centre bombing in 1993 to the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, Kepel explores the devastating impact of Islamic fundamentalism on the world at large. This book traces it back to its origins in Egypt and to its rebirth in the fifties, right through to the eruption of competing factions and currents in the seventies and eighties. Kepel takes us into the world of students and professionals, workers and unemployed alike who have been caught up in Islamist movements from Morocco to Iran, and offers a fascinating and detailed insight into Islamic fundamentalist structure, theory, and tactics. Features: * Foreword by Bernard Lewis. ‘… an extremely thoughtful and balanced guide to a movement whose influence can no longer be ignored.’ – The Cambridge Review. ‘The best book so far published on Egypt’s Islamic movements … essential reading for anyone interested in the wider ‘Islamic revival’. – The Middle East. ‘… an excellent work: stimulating, rich in first-hand information, and replete with lessons.’ – Maxime Rodinson. ‘This book gives the background necessary to understand the purpose and mindset of today’s religious radicals.’ – Mark Juergensmeyer, author of Terror in the Mind.

  • THE WAR FOR MUSLIM MINDS

    THE EVENTS OF SEPTEMBER II, 2001, forever changed the world as we knew it. In their wake, the quest for international order has prompted a reshuffling of global aims and priorities. In a fresh approach, Giles Kepel focuses on the Middle East as a nexus of international disorder and decodes the complex language of war, propaganda, and terrorism that holds the region in its thrall.

    “Gilles Kepel [has] proved to be among the most insightful Western observers of Muslim societies in the modem world.”

  • JIHAD

    In recent years, the world order has been rocked by an explosive, unexpected and extraordinary phenomenon: political Islam. Beginning in the early 1910s, militants revolted against the regimes in power across the Muslim world and exacerbated political conflicts internationally. Their jihad – or ‘Holy Struggle’ – aimed to establish a global Islamic state based solely on a strict interpretation of the Qur’an. Jihad is the first comprehensive attempt to follow the history and spread of this new political-religious phenomenon today, from the rise of Al Qaeda to the explosion of support for Hamas, Hezbollah and Islamic Jihad in the wake of the Second Palestinian Intifada. It is the definitive work on what the West has called ‘Islamic Fundamentalism’, and offers the boldest assessment of its past, its present, and where it might lead in future. Jihad is vital reading for everyone concerned with the state of the world today.
