Al-Qaeda and Sacrifice: Martyrdom, War and Politics Paperback – September 4, 2012
Best Books of the Year So Far in fiction, nonfiction, mysteries, children's books, and much more.
"This book fills a large void in the literature and shows the promise of offering practical solutions to one of humanity's major challenges at this time. It will find a wide audience including academics, policy makers, and broadly all those interested in a better understanding of terrorism." – Wanda Krause, Assistant Professor and Coordinator, Gulf Studies Program, College of Arts & Sciences, Qatar University
"Brilliant, precise, nuanced, and very timely. Finn brings together spiritual texts, continental theory and situated politics in a way that has not been done in this context, examining Al-Qaeda's role in international politics and the legitimacy of its texts. This book will appeal to a broad audience in political theory, international relations, religious studies, terrorism studies, and the study of violence." – Shannon Bell, Department of Political Science, York University (Toronto)
