From Algeria to China, from Yemen to Europe, Islamic militancy appears stronger, more widespread and more threatening than ever. But what exactly is the nature of the new threat we now face? Drawing on almost two decades of first-hand expertise alongside a vast range of sources from intelligence officials to militants themselves, this book debunks widespread myths and outdated notions and explains with total clarity what today's many diverse forms of Islamic militancy actually want, why they are different from anything we have seen before and what we should expect in the coming years.
