'There is no volume I am aware of that brings together such a rich and disparate set of reflections on the important topic of martyrdom in Islam' - Bernard Haykel: 'The breadth and the depth of the scholarship assembled in this volume is truly impressive, and several of the articles do constitute a substantial progress in our understanding of the topic.' - Rainer Brunner
