Jihad and Death

The Global Appeal of Islamic State

Olivier Roy

  • Argues that ISIS's deliberate pursuit of death has produced a new kind of radical violence
  • Argues that violence, and not religious fundamentalism, is what draws youth to radicalization
  • Argues that recent radicalization trends are more about the Islamization of radicalism than the radicalization of Islam
