"Wonderful."---Jacob N. Shapiro, Princeton University, Chronicle of Higher Education
"[They] really help us refine our understanding of what the risk factors are."---Jessica Stern, Boston University Pardee School of Global Studies, Chronicle of Higher Education
"This is an important study. . . . The wealth of statistical data they bring to bear provides what was once a hypothesis with solid empirical grounding."---Malise Ruthven, Financial Times
"A must read by its rigor and scope, a book which invites to think about one of the most disturbing aspects of contemporary history."---Hugues Lagrange, European Sociological Review
"This relatively small book breaks significant new ground and should generate many more significant studies in this area. It should prove to be an important waystation on the path to better understanding not only of violent Islamism but of other political and politico-religious phenomena. It deserves a wide readership among those seriously interested in these subjects."---William Shepard, Journal of Global Analysis
"One of Foreign Affairs' Best Books on the Middle East (Terrorism & Counterterrorism) 2016"
"[A]n interesting and important book. . . . Definitely recommended."---Tyler Cowen, Marginal Revolution

"The book raises deep questions for all fields of education, not just among the engineers and lawyers."---Peter Adminrand, Heythrop Journal
