The virulent new brand of Islamic extremism threatening the West In November 2015, ISIS terrorists massacred scores of people in Paris with coordinated attacks on the Bataclan concert hall, cafés and restaurants, and the national sports stadium. On Bastille Day in 2016, an ISIS sympathizer drove a truck into crowds of vacationers at the beaches of Nice, and two weeks later an elderly French priest was murdered during morning Mass by two ISIS militants. Here is Gilles Kepel's explosive account of the radicalization of a segment of Muslim youth that led to those attacks—and of the failure of governments in France and across Europe to address it. It is a book everyone in the West must read. Terror in France shows how these atrocities represent a paroxysm of violence that has long been building. The turning point was in 2005, when the worst riots in modern French history erupted in the poor, largely Muslim suburbs of Paris after the accidental deaths of two boys who had been running from the police. The unrest—or "French intifada"—crystallized a new consciousness among young French Muslims. Some have fallen prey to the allure of "war of civilizations" rhetoric in ways never imagined by their parents and grandparents. This is the highly anticipated English edition of Kepel's sensational French bestseller, first published shortly after the Paris attacks. Now fully updated to reflect the latest developments and featuring a new introduction by the author, Terror in France reveals the truth about a virulent new wave of jihadism that has Europe as its main target. Its aim is to divide European societies from within by instilling fear, provoking backlash, and achieving the ISIS dream—shared by Europe's Far Right—of separating Europe's growing Muslim minority community from the rest of its citizens.

Die Terroranschläge im Januar und November 2015 haben Frankreich und Europa schwer erschüttert. Der renommierte Soziologe Gilles Kepel sucht in seinem Buch Erklärungen dafür, warum sich gerade in Frankreich eine neue gesellschaftliche Kluft aufgetan hat und die Lage derart eskalieren konnte. Die »Jugend« der postkolonialen Immigration ist dabei das zentrale Thema. In der fortgesetzten wirtschaftlichen, sozialen und politischen Ausgrenzung großer Teile der muslimischen Bevölkerung Frankreichs sieht Kepel den Nährboden für die Agitation junger Muslime durch radikale Islamisten, die mit Hilfe sozialer Medien eine neue Ideologie des dezentralisierten Dschihad und den vollkommenen Bruch mit dem »ungläubigen« Okzident propagieren. Zur gleichen Zeit verstärken die Wahlsiege des Front National und der Aufstieg der extremen Rechten die Polarisation der Gesellschaft, deren Fundamente heute in noch nie dagewesener Weise von denen bedroht sind, die mit Terror und Angst den Bürgerkrieg in Gang setzen wollen. Die Fäden dieses bedrohlichen Dramas, vor dem ganz Europa steht, zu entwirren, ist das Anliegen dieses Buches.

Engaging Terror: A Critical and Interdisciplinary Approach is a collection of select extended papers drawn from The Human Condition Series (THCS) conference on Terror that took place in May, 2008. The international scope of the conference drew participants from twenty-three countries including Brazil, Columbia, Cuba, France, Israel, Lebanon, Lithuania, New Zealand, Nigeria, Pakistan, the Philippines, Scotland, Singapore, South Africa, Turkey, and the United Kingdom. The thirty-five essays presented here are a representative sample of the interdisciplinary discussion which sought to analyze popular concepts like 'terrorism' and 'terrorist' as social, political, and psychosocial phenomena. Engaging Terror seeks to reveal the diverse forms of terror that persist in contemporary societies. For instance, cultural forms such as the fine arts, film, literature, mass media, religion, and market economy continue to define and limit rationality and freedom through institutionalized forms of terror. In this way, terror shapes our experiences not only through the politics of nation-building and international relations, but also through the social and ideological production of fear in everyday life. Topics covered in this volume include the representation and production of terror from a multiplicity of sites, ranging from mental health practices and organized religion, to news coverage and musical scores. This book will appeal to both scholars and general readers interested in how seemingly benign forms of terror shape and maintain the contemporary human condition. Reaching beyond mainstream studies on terror as simply an international political phenomenon, this interdisciplinary collection of work multiplies the fields of critical research to broaden the scope of analysis and fundamentally challenge the state of modernity.

Der bewegende Bericht eines Mannes, der am 13. November 2015 während der Terroranschläge in Paris die Liebe seines Lebens verlor und mit einem einzigen Post die ganze Welt bewegte. Am 13. November 2015 sah Antoine Leiris seine Frau Hélène zum letzten Mal – sie wurde an diesem Tag mit neunundachtzig weiteren Personen im Konzertsaal Le Bataclan Opfer der Terroranschläge in Paris. Während die Welt geschockt und in tiefer Trauer versuchte, eine Erklärung für das Unfassbare zu finden, postete der Journalist auf Facebook einen offenen Brief. In bewegenden Worten wandte er sich darin an die Attentäter und verweigerte „den toten Seelen“ seinen Hass – und den seines damals siebzehn Monate alten Sohnes Melvil. Die Botschaft ging um die Welt. Er, der an jenem Tag die Liebe seines Lebens verlor, hatte nur eine Waffe: seine Worte. Das Grauen, der Verlust und die Trauer haben Antoine Leiris‘ Leben erschüttert. Ehrlich und ergreifend schildert er Momente aus einem zerstörten und doch so zärtlichen Alltag zwischen Vater und Sohn – und sagt damals wie heute, dass das Leben trotzdem weitergehen soll. Antoine Leiris trotzt dem Terror und der Gewalt mit einer bewegenden und hoffnungsvollen Botschaft: „Meinen Hass bekommt ihr nicht“.

This concise yet rich introduction to the French Revolution explores the origins, development, and eventual decline of a movement that defines France to this day. Through an accessible chronological narrative, Sylvia Neely explains the complex events, conflicting groups, and rapid changes that characterized this critical period in French history. She traces the fundamental transformations in government and society that forced the French to come up with new ways of thinking about their place in the world, ultimately leading to liberalism, conservatism, terrorism, and modern nationalism. Throughout, the author focuses on the essential political events that propelled the Revolution, at the same time deftly interweaving the intellectual, social, diplomatic, military, and cultural history of the time. Neely explains how the difficult choices made by the royal government and the revolutionaries alike not only brought on the collapse of the Old Regime but moved the nation into increasingly radical policies, to the Terror, and finally to the rise of Napoleon Bonaparte. Written with clarity and nuance, this work offers a deeply knowledgeable understanding of the political possibilities available at any given moment in the course of the Revolution, placing them in a broad social context. All readers interested in France and revolutionary history will find this an engaging and rewarding read.

From the fall of the Bastille to the rise of Napoleon, Paris was the stage for most of the greatest crises of the French Revolution. Indeed, for many historians, the Revolution was a distinctly Parisian phenomenon, restricted to the galleries of the Tuileries and the chambers of the Jacobin Club. But Paris was only one setting for a national terror which was frequently and painfully felt outside the capital. What happened during these momentous years beyond Paris? How did the revolution spread from the capital and how did it affect people living in the provinces? Drawing on newly discovered and unpublished sources which cast fresh light on the lives of everyday men and women caught up in the revolutionary ferment, The Unseen Terror vividly portrays the impact of revolution in the French provinces. Focusing on the Charente-Maritime department of western France, Richard Ballard explores the course of the Revolution outside the palaces and prisons of the capital, reclaiming the pivotal but long-neglected stories of revolutionary and counter-revolutionary tensions in the French countryside. The Unseen Terror opens in the first optimistic flush of revolutionary feeling, when the disposessed members of the Third Estate were beginning to assert themselves. In La Rochelle, the new Republic confronted the rebels from the Vendée and the guillotines claimed fresh victims while the naval port of Rochefort witnessed extremes of government coercion against supposed counter-revolutionaries. The diaries of the anti-Jacobin lawyer, François-Guillaume Marillet, provide vivid testimony of the brutal suppression of the clergy, many of whom were tortured and murdered in rotting off-shore prison hulks. With vivid examples, Ballard illustrates how and why the phenomenon of the official Terror went so deep into all areas of French society and sheds new light on the tensions which erupted in even the smallest villages, where neigbours and friends turned against one another. The Unseen Terror offers many illuminating insights into how and why the revolution took hold so far away from the French capital. It offers a unique glimpse of the violent events of the Revolution ‘from below’ and is a rich and important contribution to a fuller understanding of French history.
