"Departing from the traditional security studies approaches that have characterized so much research in this area ... [this book] bridges existing disciplines and fields of study to create a framework for understanding jihadi movements, ideologies, intellectual histories, political engagements, and changing geographies. Contributors work in a range of specializations -- including history, anthropology, political science, diplomacy, and religious studies -- and conduct thorough, detailed analyses of jihadism and its impact in Afghanistan, Yemen, Somalia, India, Pakistan, Egypt, Southeast Asia, and Europe. Edited by a scholar and an experienced diplomat, this volume balances theory and practice with unprecedented skill"--Dust jacket.
