In Their Own Words

Understanding Lashkar-e-Tayyaba

C. Christine Fair

  • Uncovers how the jihadist terrorist group Lashkar-e-Tayy-aba functions in Pakistan and beyond
  • Reveals why Pakistan supports the group despite mounting international pressure to disband it
  • Topics covered include the role of women, justification for jihad, recruitment methods, and the group's global vision
  • This book is a highly original contribution not only to our understanding of the insurgent mind, but also the quotidian pressures of those who participate in violent Islamist movements
