The apocalypse and the end of history, modern jihad and the crisis of liberalism, Suzanne Schneider - hardback

"Historian Suzanne Schneider examines the politics and ideology of the Islamic State (better known as ISIS). Schneider argues that today's jihad is not the residue from a less enlightened time, nor does it have much in common with its classical or medieval form, but it does bear a striking resemblance to the reactionary political formations and acts of spectacular violence that are upending life in Western democracies"--, Provided by publisher
