LANDSCAPES OF THE JIHAD
MILITANCY, MORALITY AND MODERNITY
The militant Islam represented by Al Qaeda is often described as a global movement. Apart from the geographical range of its operations and support, little else is held to define it as ‘global’. Landscapes of the Jihad explores the features that Al Qaeda and other strands of militant Islam share with global movements such as environmentalists and anti-globalisation protesters.
