Maajid Nawaz spent his teenage years listening to American hip-hop and learning about the radical Islamist movement spreading throughout Europe and Asia in the 1980s and 90s. At 16, he was already a ranking member in Hizb ut-Tahrir, a London-based Islamist group. He quickly rose through the ranks to become a top recruiter, a charismatic spokesman for the cause of uniting Islam’s political power across the world. Nawaz was setting up satellite groups in Pakistan, Denmark, and Egypt when he was rounded up in the aftermath of 9/11 along with many other radical Muslims. He was sent to an Egyptian prison where he was, fortuitously, jailed along with the assassins of Egyptian President Anwar Sadat. The 20 years in prison had changed the assassins’ views on Islam and violence; Maajid went into prison preaching to them about the Islamist cause, but the lessons ended up going the other way. He came out of prison four years later completely changed, convinced that his entire belief system had been wrong, and determined to do something about it. He met with activists and heads of state, built a network, and started a foundation, Quilliam, funded by the British government, to combat the rising Islamist tide in Europe and elsewhere, using his intimate knowledge of recruitment tactics in order to reverse extremism and persuade Muslims that the ‘narrative’ used to recruit them (that the West is evil and the cause of all of Muslim suffering), is false. Radical, first published in the UK, is a fascinating and important look into one man's journey out of extremism and into something else entirely. This U.S. edition contains a "Preface for US readers" and a new, updated epilogue.

Kontinuierliche Innovationen sind für nachhaltige Wettbewerbsvorteile, aber auch für volkswirtschaftlichen Wohlstand unabdingbar. Konzepte und Dimensionen von Open Innovation, Demand-pull und radikaler Innovation sowie deren Zusammenspiel sind daher nicht erst seit Chesbrough Gegenstand akademischer und unternehmenspraktischer Debatten im Bereich der Innovationsforschung. Vor dem Hintergrund aktueller sozio-ökonomischer und technologischer Entwicklungen gewinnen sie jedoch weiter an Bedeutung. Das vorliegende Buch beleuchtet Determinanten der Open Innovation Intensität und Demand-pull Beachtung börsengelisteter Unternehmen sowie den Einfluss dieser Konzepte auf die radikale Innovationstätigkeit. Spezifische Kooperationspartner und Demand-pull Dimensionen werden untersucht, um ressourcen- und transaktionskostenbasierte Ansätze mit Theorien komplementärer Fähigkeiten und absorptiver Kapazitäten zu verbinden. Die Operationalisierung der Forschungsmodelle erfolgt anhand einer Data Mining gestützten Inhaltsanalyse der Lageberichte von HDAX und SDAX, das ökonometrische Design basiert auf Fixed-Effects-Paneldatenmodellen. Es ergibt sich ein distinktiver positiver Einfluss horizontaler Kooperation, also der Zusammenarbeit mit Wettbewerbern und externen Forschungseinrichtungen, auf die Intensität radikaler Innovation. Gegenüber der Zusammenarbeit mit Kunden/Verbrauchern und Lieferanten liegen hier eher komplementäre Ressourcen und Fähigkeiten sowie gerade bei technologischer und wissenschaftsnaher Forschung höhere Kodifizier- und Formalisierbarkeit vor. Der Einfluss von Open Innovation erweist sich als geringer, wenn eine hohe Demand-pull Beachtung vorliegt, was Kooperation und Beachtung als ab einem gewissen Grad substituäre Quellen erscheinen lässt. Zudem zeigt sich etwa eine reduzierte Open Innovation Intensität nach interner Neubesetzung des Vorstandsvorsitzes. Neben an Innovation interessierten Lesern richtet sich dieses Buch an Forschende in den Bereichen Innovationsmanagement und -strategie, aber auch an Manager in Forschung und Entwicklung sowie der strategischen Unternehmensführung. Dr. Marco Tietze studierte Wirtschaftsingenieurwesen am Karlsruher Institut für Technologie (KIT) und der University of Southern Denmark. Er berät seit 2011 bei Booz & Company (jetzt Strategy&) Unternehmen zu aktuellen Fragen der Strategie und Organisation und war Mitarbeiter am Institut für Unternehmensführung der KIT-Fakultät für Wirtschaftswissenschaften bei Professor Dr. Hagen Lindstädt.

First published in 1971, Rules for Radicals is Saul Alinsky's impassioned counsel to young radicals on how to effect constructive social change and know “the difference between being a realistic radical and being a rhetorical one.” Written in the midst of radical political developments whose direction Alinsky was one of the first to question, this volume exhibits his style at its best. Like Thomas Paine before him, Alinsky was able to combine, both in his person and his writing, the intensity of political engagement with an absolute insistence on rational political discourse and adherence to the American democratic tradition. From the Trade Paperback edition.

WHAT IS JESUS WORTH TO YOU? It's easy for American Christians to forget how Jesus said his followers would actually live, what their new lifestyle would actually look like. They would, he said, leave behind security, money, convenience, even family for him. They would abandon everything for the gospel. They would take up their crosses daily... BUT WHO DO YOU KNOW WHO LIVES LIKE THAT? DO YOU? In Radical, David Platt challenges you to consider with an open heart how we have manipulated the gospel to fit our cultural preferences. He shows what Jesus actually said about being his disciple--then invites you to believe and obey what you have heard. And he tells the dramatic story of what is happening as a "successful" suburban church decides to get serious about the gospel according to Jesus. Finally, he urges you to join in The Radical Experiment -- a one-year journey in authentic discipleship that will transform how you live in a world that desperately needs the Good News Jesus came to bring.

From Left to Right, one man has influenced them all: Saul Alinsky. Radical is a personal portrait of this controversial mastermind of popular movements, a man who is often called the American Machiavelli. The tactics and strategy of Alinsky, who died in 1972, have been studied by people as diverse as Barack Obama, Cesar Chavez, Hillary Clinton, Dick Armey, the Tea Partiers, and activists and organizers of every persuasion. Thousands of organizations around the country owe their inspiration and origins to Alinsky—who is to community organizing what Freud is to psychoanalysis. As told by his friend and protégé Nicholas von Hoffman, whom Alinsky dubbed “in all the world my favorite, drinking, talking, and thinking companion,” Radical is an intimate look at the man who made a career of arming the powerless and enraging the powerful. From Alinsky’s smuggling guinea pigs into the Joliet state penitentiary to the famous Buffalo fart-in. von Hoffman’s book reveals the humor as well as the ideals and anger that drove Alinsky to become a major figure in a democratic tradition dating back to Tom Paine. Many of the stories about politicians, bishops, gangsters, millionaires, and labor leaders, which Alinsky did not want made public in his lifetime, are told here for the first time in Radical. Von Hoffman captures Alinsky’s brilliant critique of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s organizational tactics and where and why they succeeded or failed. It was a career that began in the politics and violence of the Great Depression and worked its way through the Communist threat, the racial struggles, and the Vietnam War protests of the second half of the twentieth century. The first book to explain why so many have co-opted Alinsky’s ideas, and the first to explain why so many contemporary politicians misunderstand his message, Radical will become essential reading for anyone interested in American politics, past and present.

Spending money is the last thing anyone wants to do right now. We are in the midst of a massive cultural shift away from consumerism and toward a vibrant and very active countermovement that has been thriving on the outskirts for quite some time—do-it-yourselfers who make frugal, homemade living hip are challenging the notion that true wealth has anything to do with money. In Making It, Coyne and Knutzen, who are at the forefront of this movement, provide readers with all the tools they need for this radical shift in home economics. The projects range from simple to ambitious and include activities done in the home, in the garden, and out in the streets. With step-by-step instructions for a wide range of projects—from growing food in an apartment and building a ninety-nine-cent solar oven to creating safe, effective laundry soap for pennies a gallon and fishing in urban waterways—Making It will be the go-to source for post-consumer living activities that are fun, inexpensive, and eminently doable. Within hours of buying this book, readers will be able to start transitioning into a creative, sustainable mode of living that is not just a temporary fad but a cultural revolution.

This unique book represents one of the first systematic attempts to explain why thousands of Westerners heed international calls to 'jihad' and join radical Islamic groups. Drawing on his unprecedented access to a radical Islamic group, Quintan Wiktorowicz details the subtle process that can turn seemingly unreligious people into supporters of religious violence. The author's extraordinary fieldwork forms the basis of a detailed case study of al-Muhajiroun, a transnational movement based in London that supports Bin Laden and other Islamic terrorists. Through its rich empirical detail, the case study explains the larger question of why ordinary people join extremist movements.
