Chapter Summary

This chapter presents a review of the book The New Frontiers of Jihad: Radical Islam in Europe. The great contribution of this book is its moderate tone and its dispassionate analysis of the phenomenon of Islamist terrorism, which up to now has been the subject of much alarmist opinion which has simply selected facts to bolster one ideological position. The book is a must read for anyone interested in the wave of Islamist terror that threatens Europe. It is a good introduction to the subject and should especially inform policy for decision-makers concerned about security. The author of the book demonstrates the 'Europeanisation' of the conflict with an analysis of the Madrid and London bombings. The book ends by discussing the significance of radical converts to Islam and the Muslim reaction to the Danish cartoon affair, demonstrating the dilemmas of mainstream Muslims.
