The new edition of From Fatwa to Jihad, with an Afterword (and a new subtitle) is published today.

You can read an extract from the new Preface, and watch two Faculti videos I made about the original edition.

You can buy the book from most bookshops, or from Amazon. Patrons of Pandaemonium who contribute more than $5 a month get a free copy. I will be in touch!

From Fatwa to Jihad tells, for the most part brilliantly, this baleful tale… a challenge to boneheads on both the right and the left.’

Bryan Appleyard, Sunday Times

‘The great appeal of From Fatwa to Jihad is its pitiless observation… which raises it above the easy standards of one-sided polemic. No one gets away.’

Faisal Gazi, Guardian

‘A valuable and sophisticated attempt to understand some of the most troubling phenomena of our time, without resort to oversimplification.’

Theodore Dalrymple, City Journal

    Dear Mr. Malek,
    Congratulations.I look forward to reading your book.
    In advertising its availability from on-lie vendors, could you also mention the Book Depository, which seems to be a better employer and corpoarate citizen than Amazon.
    Thanks for your consideration.
    P.S.
