Jihadism Transformed

Al-Qaeda and Islamic State's Global Battle of Ideas

Simon Staffell and Akil Awan

  • The contributors examine whether the challenge presented to al-Qaeda by Islamic State heralds a tectonic shift in international jihadism
  • A timely collection of essays that examines how jihadist narratives have changed globally -- Middle East, South Asia, Europe and Africa
  • Success of the ISIL narrative has been as much about resonance with local contexts as it has been about the global appeal of a realised caliphate
