How do we engage with the pressing challenges of xenophobia, radicalism and security in the current political climate? The widely felt sense of insecurity in the West is shared by Muslims both within and outside Western societies. Growing Islamic militancy and the subsequent increased security measures by Western powers have contributed to a pervasive sense among Muslims of being under attack both physically and culturally. "Islam and Political Violence" brings together current debates on the uneasy and potentially mutually destructive relationship between the Muslim world and the West and argues that we are on a dangerous trajectory, strengthening dichotomous notions of the divide between the West and the Muslim world.

"'Judiciously blending theoretical discussions with the analysis of manifestations of Islamic sentiment in important parts of the world, this book offers a wealth of instructive material for both specialist and general readers.'-Professor William Maley, Director, Asia-Pacific College of Diplomacy, Australian National University, Canberra 'This is a timely and significant volume. Produced by two of Australia's leading Muslim provides fresh insight not just on jihadi Islamist terrorism itself but also on our reaction to it, laying bare some of the central complexities and moral quandaries of our troubled times. In their probing essays James Piscatori, Bryan Turner, Riaz Hassan, Greg Fealy and other leading scholars of Muslim society explore the drivers of jihadi Islamism in contemporary Muslim societies, including in Indonesia and the rest of Muslim Asia, and the Islamophobic fears and dark anxieties that this threat has unleashed in western societies. There are no easy answers in this field, but knowledge and insight of the kind presented here is essential to finding a way forward.'-Dr Greg Barton, Associate Professor, Asia-Pacific Center for Security Studies (APCSS), USA"
