This book is the first attempt to provide a global view on the pheno­menon of Isla­mism from its begin­ning in Medina under the Prophet Muhammad to its new forms with the ‘Cali­phate’ of Abu Bakr al-Bagh­dadi and the ‘Imamate’ of Ayatollah Khamenei. It demon­s­t­rates that all Isla­mists: Shia, Sunni, Salafi or Jihadi are aiming the same goal: The conquest of the world and the restau­ra­tion of the Isla­mist World Empire by all means. Is this only a utopia? Not in Isla­mist optic. Isla­mists cons­ider the fall of the Soviet Empire and the unpre­ce­dented crisis in Europe, due to the massive Muslim immi­g­ra­tion, as the crepus­cular of the collapse of the exis­ting world order. The reader finds in this book an elabo­rated discus­sion on strength and weak­ness of Isla­mist world project.

Mehdi Mozaf­fari is Professor Emeritus, Depart­ment of Political Science, Aarhus Univer­sity, Denmark, and former head of the Centre for Studies in Isla­mism and Radi­ca­liza­tion (CIR). He is the author of a number of books and scho­larly arti­cles on inter­na­tional politics, Islam and globa­liza­tion.
