Islamist Terrorism in Europe

A History

Petter Nesser

  • This rigorous account is the first overview of the Islamist terrorist campaign in Europe since 9/11
  • Europe is witnessing an increase of Islamist terrorist plots, such as the shootings at Charlie Hebdo in Paris, the grisly beheading of a British military officer on the streets of London in 2013, and the shootings in Toulouse and Montauban in 2012
  • While most analysis of the growing phenomenon focuses on social explanations, Nesser highlights the role of Arab-Afghan veterans in promoting a jihadist agenda
