Editorial Reviews


“Schneider demolishes the myth that modern jihadi violence is anything other than a product of modernity.”
—Rashid Khalidi

“By attributing Islamic militancy neither to immediately political nor distantly theological causes, Suzanne Schneider’s wonderfully lucid and convincing argument allows us to see it in anew as something both familiar and frightening in its ubiquity. The links she draws between the violent, apocalyptic, and nihilistic character of ISIS and the colonial origins of neoliberal practices make for a wholly original approach to the subject.”
Faisal Devji, author of Muslim Zion

“In her revelatory new book, Suzanne Schneider dismantles all-too-common invocations of ‘jihad’ as a timeless, essentialized force that defines a monolithic and static version of Islam. Instead, she situates the concept firmly within the context of contemporary geopolitical, economic, and ideological trends. Deftly juxtaposing classical Islamic jurisprudence alongside social media propaganda videos, the polemics of Western politicians alongside the narratives of individual jihadis, the PowerPoint presentations of private military corporations alongside glossy org charts produced by extremist groups, and more, Schneider brilliantly challenges prevailing assumptions about sovereignty, the nation state, the monopoly on violence, and more. Through her erudite analysis, entities like ISIS emerge not as atavistic reincarnations of medieval brutality, but rather as responses to political and economic conditions that implicate and even darkly mirror developments in the imperial core. The result is both a clarifying vision of our contemporary moment and a generative stock of provocative insights into possible futures for the Middle East, the nations that define themselves as making up ‘the West,’ and the broader, interconnected world that contains and belies easy distinctions between the two.”
Patrick Blanchfield, author of Gunpower: The Structure of American Violence

“[Schneider’s] discussion of the ‘jihadists,’ their motivations and rationales most certainly need to be heard by those who would send their military to foreign lands.”
—Ron Jacobs, CounterPunch
