The recent attacks in Paris, Brussels, Nice and Orlando heralded a new wave of terrorism, one that will keep societies and security agencies in the West preoccupied for years to come. In his new book – Radicalized: New Jihadists and the Threats against the West (IB Tauris, 2016) – Professor Peter Neumann explains who the 'new jihadists' are, where they come from and what they want.
This is the first book on jihadist radicalisation and Islamic State that focuses on their impact on the West, highlights historical continuities, and shows what needs to be done to counter the threat more effectively.
Peter Neumann is Professor of Security at King's College London and serves as Director of the International Centre for the Study of Radicalisation (ICSR). He is a leading expert on terrorism and radicalisation, and has advised governments and international institutions on both sides of the Atlantic.
