Pariah Politics: Understanding Western Islamist Extremism and What Should be Done By Shamit Saggar
Publisher: Oxford University Press, USA | ISBN: 0199558132 | edition 2009 | PDF | 352 pages | 1,5 mb
Uniquely, this book looks at western Islamist extremism from the perspective of government. Analytically-grounded, it asks what should and can be done. It identifies various causes of the problem, some of which government can tackle, and some of which government can only influence indirectly. The biggest priority is to remove the moral oxygen for confrontation and violence. This sustains the men of violence. Intercepting and disrupting terror plots can get us only so far. Regrettably, many western Muslims are ambivalent about extremism, contributing heavily to their pariah reputation. Government alone cannot solve this problem and nor should it try to do so. It can, however, use existing policies more imaginatively and effectively. It can moderate abstract secular principles. It can pursue more engaged policies at home and abroad. It can recognize its limitations. It can act wisely to prevent making things worse. And it can support western Muslim communities to change and build a positive reputation.
