Revue de presse

"This is a book for our times. It should be read by anyone who wants to understand how the extremism that stalks our world is created and how it can be overcome. It could only be written by someone who has lived this story. And Maajid has" (Tony Blair)

"This book is more powerful than America's drone attacks because it helps kill the ideas that inspire terrorists. Ultimately, it is by defeating the extremists' worldview that we will make our world safer. Maajid's compelling story from hatred to hope shows us how this can be done" (Ed Husain, author of The Islamist)

"Maajid Nawaz was thirty years my junior when I first encountered him in the Torah Prison. His story saddened but inspired me. His innocence and idealism sharply contrasted with the corruption and despotism of his captors. Through Maajid my faith was renewed that a spring of freedom was bound to happen eventually, and so it did" (Dr Saad El-Dine Ibrahim, Egyptian liberal reform pioneer and former political prisoner)

"This book is the account of a redemptive journey - through innocence, bigotry, hardline radicalism and beyond - to a passionate advocacy of human rights and all that this can mean ... I was moved beyond measure" (Kate Allen, Director, Amnesty International UK)

"Imagine Homeland crossed with Skins, and you will get some idea of what a gripping, revelatory book this is. Unputdownable" (Tom Holland)

Présentation de l'éditeur

Born and raised in Essex, Maajid Nawaz was recruited into politicised Islam as a teenager. Abandoning his love of hip hop music, graffiti and girls, he was recruited into Hizb ut-Tahrir (the Liberation Party) where he played a leading and international role in the shaping and dissemination of an aggressive anti-West narrative. While studying for his Arabic and law degree, he travelled around the UK and to Denmark and Pakistan, setting up new cells.



Arriving in Egypt the day before 9/11 his views soon led to his arrest, imprisonment and mental torture, before being thrown into solitary confinement in a Cairo jail reserved for political prisoners. There, while mixing with everyone from the assassins of Egypt's president to Liberal reformists, he underwent an intellectual transformation and on his release after four years, he publically renounced the Islamist ideology that had defined his life. This move would cost him his marriage, his family and his friends as well as his own personal security.



Six years after his release, Maajid now works all over the world to counter Islamism and to promote democratic ideals through his organisation, The Quilliam Foundation, which he co-founded with former Islamist and bestselling author Ed Husain.



Following in the wake of the extraordinary democratic change in the Arab world, that few would have foretold, Radical is Maajid's intensely personal account of life inside and out of Islamic extremism. It also highlights one man's quest to inspire change and challenge extremism in all its forms.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 RADICAL My Journey From Islamist Extremism to a Democratic Awakening 11 juillet 2012
Par Mrs. Dalal Ender - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
Despite many high profile professionals, scholars and academics writing about radicalism and extremism from an intellectual perspective which is very useful to explain and unlock this phenomena, Maajid here provides an indispensable history to a certain extent that examines the origins of the extremist's ideology and it's development. Nawaz's book is a mémoire not an academic, but when you read it you will understand how difficult it is to address extremist radical groups and their history without giving an account about the history of the individuals involved themselves in the process of building and developing these groups. I think that is what "Radical", Maajid's book did. I highly recommend it for someone who's not interested in complex sophisticated arguments about extremism but rather wanting a clear fact based account.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 This could be the answer to radical Islamists 16 octobre 2013
Par R. Martenis - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
Radical tells the life history of Maajid who grew up in Southern England as a minority, taunted and threatened because he was Pakistani. His anger turns him into a radical and he travels to Middle East to recruit and set up radical cells for terrorist group Hizb al-Tahrir (HT). He is arrested in Egypt and spends 4 years in a despicable Egyptian jail. While in jail he does a lot of thinking and figuring out that Islamism and Islam are two completely different things. He maintains that Islam is the religion, Islamism is a political ideal. I have heard other opinions that Islam is not just a religion (according to Quran), but is a complete lifestyle including politics. He sets up an organization called Quilliam to challenge both anti-Islam and Islamist extremists worldwide.

His early teenage years are interesting to show what kind of mischief unsupervised teens with money, free time, graphic music in a metropolitan area, especially with rampant racism, can get into. His conversion to radical came because he saw Islamism as a way to obtain power over his enemies and to remove Western influence from Arabian countries.

The author's genius is very evident in that he sees clearly that Islamism should not be a political force, that democracy is the best path for everybody. He may have the exact correct answer to fighting the radicals in the Middle East and Islamists everywhere. Time will tell if Quilliam can turn radicals around.

My problem with the book is his repeating that HIS God has not and will never desert him (meanwhile admitting that he's not very religious). Isn't his God the same as those thousands in Egyptian jails and elsewhere who are physically abused and die every day? Does he consider himself special? He doesn't say. Also, he calls Ayaan Hirsi Ali a `women's rights activist and author'. He knows very well her story told in her incredible book `Infidel'. She became an atheist because of how she was physically and mentally abused only because she was born female in a Muslim country (also, because of her study of Quran). Her abusers were not radicals; they were just normal Muslims, mainly her own family. She claims that all of her abuses are allowed by the Quran, so she cannot worship a God like that. Her views need to be respected because she lived through the abuse and is doing all she can to turn the spotlight on problems faced by half the adult population in Islam.

I would like to give this book 5 stars just because Maajid has a brilliant solution to a massive problem, but I can't because most of his problems he created for himself and was very lucky (doubtful that there was divine intervention) to survive his poor choices. Hopefully, he can continue to use his genius in the future, and make sure he has lots of security around him.

This book is incredible. Nawaz's story provides valuable, eye-opening insight into this worldwide movement and how we can counteract it in a way that is still respectful of people and their religion, which you learn is the only way you will have any real success. Nawaz is smart and nails every point; I highly recommend watching his interviews and talks as well as reading this book. His story should be told on the big screen. Until then I'm telling everyone I know.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 An important book for an informed American. 13 novembre 2013
Par Katherine J. Brett - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Extremely informative and educational. Understanding the difference between Islamism and Islam is crucial when dealing with terrorists vs the ordinary Muslim. I also found the book to be an "eye opener" in how racism was the catalyst for his conversion to an extremist.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Author’s Search for an Identity 8 novembre 2013
Par Scott Haraburda - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Describing contemporary socio-political developments involving religious freedoms, Radical: My Journey out of Islamist Extremism provides an excellent first-hand view. It’s an autobiography of a British Pakastani, Maajid Nawaz, who used to be a former member and leader within Hizb ut-Tahrir, an Islamist revolutionary group.

This book begins with his teenage years listening to American hip-hop while learning about the radical Islamist movement. Through racial harassment in the UK, this young teenager on the receiving end of this pain struggled to survive. Along the way, he found others suffering the same humiliation. Unfortunately, it was from an extremist religious group, intent upon hurting those who harassed them.

A well-written personal narrative, this book was the author’s search of an identity. Throughout his life, he made unwise decisions, leading to a fate determined by the ones he took. While imprisoned in Egypt for a few years, Mr. Nawaz began to question his allegiance to Hizb ut-Tahrir. Shortly upon his release, he resigned from this organization. Today, he’s the Executive Director of Quilliam, a counter-extremism think tank, and is co-founder of Khudi, a counter-extremism social movement working in Pakistan. He’s also the current Liberal Democratic candidate for the north London seat in Parliament.

In the author’s words (although not in this book), the main theme involves democracy. It’s “not just about holding elections. Hitler was elected after all. Rather, without a human rights culture, freedom of speech, freedom of movement, of association and belief, there can be no free and fair elections.” Neither an Islamist revolutionary group or an anti-Muslim group supports democracy, which is important to the future of any country.

A very good book to read. Radical provides optimism that alternatives to Islamism (and other hateful religious groups) may flourish.
