A great book for anyone who wants to study al-Qaeda's and ISIS's affiliate network. By developing a comprehensive and convincing typology of terrorist cooperation, Moghadam adds substantially to our knowledge of the phenomenon. (Guido Steinberg, author of German Jihad: On the Internationalization of Islamist Terrorism)
An impressive achievement. Moghadam's book is destined to become the standard reference on the subject of terrorist cooperation for the foreseeable future. (Ely Karmon, author of Coalitions Between Terrorist Organizations: Revolutionaries, Nationalists, and Islamists )
Nexus of Global Jihad offers an unparalleled look at the many dimensions of terrorist group cooperation, with a particular focus on the greatest threat today―the global jihadist movement. Moghadam's work is theoretically informed and empirically rich, greatly advancing our knowledge of terrorism in general and clandestine cooperation in particular. (Daniel Byman, Georgetown University)
What explains changing patterns of cooperation among terrorists―who cooperates, how, and in what political contexts? Relying on an impressive range of examples as well as established theory, Assaf Moghadam expertly answers this critical but rarely addressed question and in doing so illustrates the complexity of a dynamic and shifting threat. Understanding these interactions within the jihadist universe is essential to an appropriate response to contemporary terrorism. (Martha Crenshaw, Center for International Security and Cooperation, Stanford University)
Nexus of Global Jihad is a major contribution to the field of terrorism studies. It is refreshingly free of academic jargon, but it is also a work for first class scholarship and deep research. Highly recommended. (Peter Bergen, Author of United States of Jihad: Investigating America's Homegrown Terrorists)
