Friction How Radicalization Happens to Them and UsFrom publishers:

  • Explores the ways in which people are radicalized, an issue that is particularly important to the public in the post-9/11 era
  • Draws from a wide range of case material from Russia in the late 19th century, the US in the 1970s, and Afghanistan after the fall of the Soviet Union in the 1990s
  • Outlines the effects of government action on radicalization
  • Offers new perspectives on radicalization occuring on a large scale, not simply at the individual or group level
  • Argues provocatively that the same mechanisms are at work in radicalizing terrorists and the radicalization of states targeted by terrorists
