Dr. Glenn E. Robinson, Professor of Defense Analysis (Retired), Naval Postgraduate School
His most recent book, Global Jihad: A Brief History, was named by both Foreign Affairs and Foreign Policy as a “Best Book of 2021.”
Most violent jihadi movements in the twentieth century focused on removing corrupt, repressive secular regimes throughout the Muslim world. But following the 1979 Soviet invasion of Afghanistan, a new form of jihadism emerged—global jihad—turning to the international arena as the primary locus of ideology and action. With this book, Glenn E. Robinson develops a compelling and provocative argument about this violent political movement’s evolution.
