Military action abroad and police action at home have only attended to the symptoms of global terrorism, not the cause. The root, according to Dr. Azeem Ibrahim, is the extreme ideology of Wahhabism―the puritanical, reactionary, isolationist, xenophobic sect of Sunni Islam that has been the bedrock of the state of Saudi Arabia since its original rise in the 18th Century.
In Radical Origins, Ibrahim charts the menacing growth of an ideology that is fueling ISIS and terror cells worldwide, and offers a path forward through specific policy goals and social action. It is at once an invaluable primer on radicalism and jihadist history, and a clear-eyed prescription for stopping the spread of radicalization once and for all.
