Jihad & Co.
Black Markets and Islamist Power
Reviews and Awards
"The book is at its best in the historical narrative sections, which are peppered with quotations from insiders whom the author has interviewed in person For economists and political scientists, the book's main focus on financial and/or power incentives of various parties is a welcome application of rational choice theory in policy and cultural debates about the problem of militant Islamism. It accomplishes this task well."--Mahmoud el-Gamal, Reading Religion
"This book is one of a kind." --Foreign Affairs
"Ahmad has invested academic rigour in studying one of the most important security questions of our time. For governments, policy makers, researchers, and anyone else tasked with finding solutions to these seemingly intractable questions, this book provides critical direction." --Literary Review of Canada
