The first psychological and systematic analysis of violent radicalisation within the Islamic communities of the UK. In MARTYRDOM, psychologist Dr Jon Cole and international affairs analyst Dr Benjamin Cole examine the phenomenon of jihadism , and how the Islamic fundamentalist call to arms has recruited footsoldiers among the ostensibly westernised young Muslims of the UK. Clear-sighted and avoiding moral hysteria, the authors timely analysis charts the growth of the Jihadi movement from localised outrage at the suffering of Muslims worldwide to training in al Qaeda camps on the Pakistani/Afghan border. Complemented by photographs illustrating the international situations that have become volatile flashpoints, MARTYRDOM examines individual cases including: Richard Reid, the shoe bomber who tried to bring down a Paris-to-Miami flight in the early post-9/11 days. Omar Sheikh, the ex-public schoolboy complicit in the murder of US journalist Daniel Pearl. Asif Hanif, the Briton who became a suicide bomber in Tel Aviv. The Ammonium Nitrate cell, who conspired to bomb London nightclubs and shopping centres. The Gas Limos cell, who planned to hit London with a dirty bomb . The 7/7 cell, who brought terror and suffering to the London Underground in the name of international justice. Parviz Khan, convicted of conspiring to decapitate a British Muslim soldier. Plus cases such as the alleged airline conspiracy of 2006. From selective Koranic readings by radical preachers to explicitly violent documentary footage on the internet, MARTYRDOM examines the social and psychological forces that have led young people to cross over the line to terrorism.
