As the global jihadist movement grows more complex, the escalating threat to international security demands a clear vision for winning against terrorism. Middle East analyst and Terrorism expert Walid Phares, author of Future Jihad and The War of Ideas, provides an illuminating overview of the global clashes to come and a blueprint for defeating the forces of jihadism. Offering global strategies for the potential powderkeg states of jihadism—from Afghanistan, Somalia, Chad, wartime Iraq, to Lebanon and Iran —Phares’s multi-pronged strategy calls on the world’s local and international institutions to come together and coordinate their efforts. Pointing the way forward, this book shows how we might reclaim a world that is safe for freedom and democratic societies.
