Dr Paul Moorcraft’s recent controversial and prophetic book on Islamic terrorism – The Jihadist Threat: Reconquest of the West? – raised a storm and many questions. Here he answers them. The author is unusual in having spent time with frontline jihadists in Afghanistan, the Balkans and North Africa. So this is no moral tract based on theory but instead draws on hard frontline combat. Jihadism has become a long-term threat to the West. Then along came Brexit and Donald Trump to add to the complications of rogue Russian behaviour.
Superpowers, Rogue States and Terrorism is unique in analysing today’s crises and opportunities in the context of a matrix of threats ranging from Russia, China, through jihadism to North Korea. The possible solutions to these challenges that the author offers are highly provocative, including re-introducing internment for UK jihadists to the dismemberment of the two prime Western enemies, namely Saudi Arabia and Pakistan. He also examines possible deals with Russia and China, not least in solving the blatant nuclear sabre-rattling by North Korea.
Professor Moorcraft’s expert insights are based upon extensive knowledge and first-hand eye-witness experience. But beware: he doesn’t pull punches nor are his views in any way politically correct.
