Publisher's Description

The true story of one man's journey to Islamic fundamentalism and back

Raised in a devout but quiet Muslim community in London, at sixteen Ed Husain was presented with an intriguing political interpretation of Islam known as fundamentalism. Lured by these ideas, he committed his life to them. Five years later, he rejected extremism and tried to return to a normal life. But soon he realized that Islamic fundamentalists pose a threat that most people-Muslim and non- Muslim alike-simply don't understand.

Based on first-hand experiences and written with pervasive clarity, The Islamist delivers a rare inside glimpse of the devious methods used to recruit new members, and offers profound insight into the appeal fundamentalism has for young Muslims in the Western world.

Author Bio

Ed Husain was an Islamic fundamentalist for five years. He has since traveled widely in the Middle East and worked for the British Council in Syria and Saudi Arabia. He is a cofounder of the Quillium Foundation, Britain's first Muslim counter-extremism think tank.
