Editorial Reviews

Review

" A Quietist Jihadi is a truly impressive work of scholarship that delves deep into a field that was, until recently, largely terra incognita, and emerges with a compelling portrait of a key figure in both contemporary salafism and the world of radical militancy. This is a major accomplishment, and Wagemakers' A Quietist Jihadi is surely destined to be remembered as a milestone in these emerging fields of study." -Daniel Lav, Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Islam and Christian-Muslim Relations

Book Description

Since 9/ll, Abu Muhammad al-Maqdisi has emerged as one of the most important radical Muslim scholars alive today. While al-Maqdisi may not be a household name in the West, his influence amongst like-minded Muslims stretches across the world from Jordan to Southeast Asia. This groundbreaking book, which is the first comprehensive assessment of al-Maqdisi, his life, ideology, and influence, is based on his extensive writings as well as interviews that the author conducted with former jihadis, including al-Maqdisi himself. It is a serious and intense work of scholarship that uses this considerable archive to explain and interpret al-Maqdisi's particular brand of Salafism. More broadly, the book offers an alternative, insider perspective on the rise of radical Islam.
