'An excellent and original account of what jihadists actually think. Mr Maher goes well beyond previous works ... in setting out a taxonomy of jihadists' system of beliefs. It will be a must-read work in the study of radicalism.' * The Economist * '[A] groundbreaking study ... a masterclass in how to do intellectual history, and one that nobody with an interest in radical Islam should miss.' * Tom Holland, New Statesman * 'Shiraz Maher makes it clear in his fascinating new book that we are witnessing a very recent phenomenon: "the greatest period of anti-western intellectual development in Salafi-jihadi thought took place in the years after the 9/11 terrorist attacks".' * Patrick French, The Guardian * 'Mr. Maher deserves praise for producing a book that is the first of its kind, synthesizing work that has been done on the individual components of Salafi-jihadism. Readers looking for a rigorous but lucid account of Islamic State's ideas will be well-served by Mr. Maher's book.' * Wall Street Journal * 'Salafi-Jihadism provides an excellent and important insight into an intricately constructed religious and intellectual situation .. it provides much needed context to some of the most complex and consequential events in the world today. With its elegant, engaging style and crisp brevity, this book is an excellent investigation into a subject many of us would do well to learn that bit more about.' * Middle East Eye * 'In this perceptive and lucid survey, Shiraz Maher traces the evolution of they key ideas behind one of the most significant religious and political movements of our time. He explains their origins, meanings and, above all, their real impact on violent militants over the last three or four decades. Comprehensive and thought-provoking, this is an important and timely contribution.' * Jason Burke, author of The New Threat From Islamic Militancy *

This is the first time I've ever seen poorly rendered digital content in a book I purchased from Amazon. On a number of pages, the text is cut off at the top of a paragraph.
Further, it's very difficult to find a place where this can be properly reported. Nothing I found is set up to let users report quality issues with digital content. It doesn't belong in the review, which I hope I can edit later if this problem is addressed.
Please fix the digital version of this book so readers can see all of the text. Thank you.
