Suicide bombers Allah's new martyrs by Farhad Khosrokhavar ( )
9 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 1,216 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In the West, the suicide bomber has become a familiar image in newspapers and on television. In Palestine, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Indonesia and elsewhere, the results of suicide bombing have been devastating. What drives young men and women to become suicide bombers? This is not a question that is often addressed. This remarkable book provides some of the answers, and explores how the suicide bomber relates to the concept of the martyr in fundamentalist Islam. Farhad Khosrokhavar contrasts it with the idea of the martyr in Christianity. Most importantly, he offers a clear insight into the different ways in which the concept is viewed within Islam, including divisions within Islamic fundamentalist groups, which change according to the political situation of the country in which they are based. Drawing on extensive interviews with jailed Islamist militants, Farhad Khosrokhavar examines differing attitudes towards the 'sacred death' in various Islamic countries, including Iran, Palestine, Lebanon and Egypt. He also investigates transnational networks such as Al-Qaeda, offering portraits of various prisoners who belong to the group. Farhad Khosrokhavar distinguishes between two types of martyr: those from the developing world, who are excluded from what modernity has to offer; and the minority who live at the heart of the Western world - a mainly middle-class diaspora from the Middle East and the Maghreb who are at ease with several cultural codes, but whose experience of the West is still marked by racism and discrimination
Inside jihadism : understanding jihadi movements worldwide by Farhad Khosrokhavar ( Book )
8 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 703 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Jihad is the most organized force against Western capitalism since the Soviet era. Yet jihadism is multifaceted and complex, much broader than Al-Quaeda alone. In the first wide-ranging introduction to today's rapidly growing jihadism, Khosrokhavar explains how two key movements variously influence jihadi activists. One, based in the Middle East, is more heavily influenced by Islamic religion and political thought. The other, composed of individuals growing up or living mostly in Europe and Western democracies including the United States, is motivated by secular as well as religious influences. Khosrokhavar interprets religious and lesser-known Arabic texts and the real world economic and political dynamics that make jihadism a growing threat to Western democracies. Interviews with imprisoned jihadists on what motivated their plots and actions help the readers understand reality as seen by jihadists. The author concludes with recommendations to safeguard democracies from future jihadism." -- Back cover
Muslims in prison : challenge and change in Britain and France by James A Beckford ( Book )
10 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 250 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The authors have based their findings upon original sociological research into the different responses of British and French authorities to the increasing numbers of Muslims in prison. Interviews with inmates and prison staff in various prisons show that Britain and France make sharply different provisions for the practice of Islam. The well-established practice of Christian chaplaincy in British prisons has been so well adapted to the needs of Muslims that Islam is becoming institutionalised and cemented into the structure of prisons. By contrast, French prisons provide relatively few opportunities for Muslim prisoners to practice their religion under the leadership of qualified Imams. Consequently, varieties of do-it-yourself Islam and of Muslim extremism flourish unofficially on the margins of French prisons. The book's conclusions point to the different policy implications of the British and French ways of responding to Muslim prisoners."--BOOK JACKET

Femmes sous le voile face à la loi islamique by Chahla Chafiq ( Book )
4 editions published in 1995 in French and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
La place de la femme musulmane dans la société contemporaine est un enjeu politique et culturel décisif. Un enjeu illustré en France par lʹaffaire du foulard ; au Bangladesh par la condamnation de lʹœuvre de lʹécrivaine Taslima Nasreen ; en Algérie par la violence des groupes islamistes. Le développement dʹun mouvement islamiste, en Iran et ailleurs, a modifié le statut qui était réservé traditionnellement aux femmes depuis lʹaube de lʹislam. Pour les auteurs, les modèles différents de la femme musulmane -- voilée, non voilée, islamiste, traditionnelle, occidentalisée -- sont révélateurs des contradictions dʹune religion qui sʹestime menacée par la modernité. Le livre qui rappelle avec clarté et minutie les fondements de la loi islamique, permet enfin dʹinstaurer un débat essentiel et dʹéviter lʹimage simpliste et surmédiatisée de la femme sous le voile. Il montre comment les stratagèmes féminins pour contourner les interdits, leur jeu subversif avec le voile, témoignent de leur refus de lʹexclusion. Et lʹéchec des femmes islamistes est à cet égard significatif. Résistant aux pressions quotidiennes de lʹislam radicalisé, des femmes cherchent la voie dʹun islam apaisé et reconcilié avec lui-même. Ce livre a pour objectif de mettre fin aux malentendus et aux erreurs dʹinterprétation liés à cette évolution. -- Back cover
