Editorial Reviews


'This is an important book with a significant amount of information for the reader as well as useful references and insights.' - Richard Whelan, Terrorism and Political Violence, Vol. 23, 3, June 2011

'Jarret Brachman's brilliant analysis of the ideology that inspires and sustains Al Qaeda and other violent jihadi movements will greatly enhance understanding of
the threat they pose to peace and security . It is an invaluable aid for those engaged in combating the recruitment of future generations of jihadi suicide terrorists.'
Paul Wilkinson , Emeritus Professor of International Relations, University of St Andrews

'Global Jihadism is an important contribution to the literature on al Qaeda and Salafist jihadism specifically and terrorism in general. Brachman masterfully dissects the ideology and strategy as well as the information operations and actual plots and attacks that have sustained this movement since 9/11. The book provides a timely and incisive analysis of the most pressing security challenge of our time.'
Professor Bruce Hoffman, School of Foreign Service, Georgetown University

‘Global Jihadism is an erudite, well-organized and interesting tour though the world of transnational jihadist terrorism that will be of interest to specialists, students and interested readers alike. Jarret Brachman has written an authoritative account of this complex subject.’ 
Peter Bergen, author of Holy War, Inc. and The Osama bin Laden I Know.

Format: Paperback
This is a great contribution to the literature from one of the world's most knowledgeable experts on al-Qaida. Easy to read, yet very well researched, Professor Brachman leads us through a labrynth of names, theories, strategies and other vital dimensions of this global threat. Certainly a book worth adding to any collection on terrorism studies. -- James Forest, Ph.D., Director of Terrorism Studies, West Point

I research the strategic communication of global jihadi organizations. This is by far the my most useful book. If you are interested in understanding global jihadi organizations and individuals buy this book.
