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.

This is a hard-hitting memoir of one man's journey into and out of Islamic extremism.

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.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 RADICAL My Journey From Islamist Extremism to a Democratic Awakening 11 juillet 2012
Par Mrs. Dalal Ender - Publié sur
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.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 I'm glad I read this book 11 octobre 2014
Par C. Phillips - Publié sur
I'm glad I read this book. It's invaluable to have the kind of insight that Nawaz provides here. His account of how he found himself so deeply entrenched in Hizb ut-Tahrir was compelling. It even occasionally called to mind for me other personal stories shared by former members of Scientology. I think his story serves as a healthy warning for anyone who may be eagerly searching for a deep meaning and purpose to life, and how "ripe for the picking" people can appear to those pushing a particular ideology (whether it be religious, political, or both).

This is not to suggest that the author was a weak-minded individual. The opposite appears to be true. My guess is the confidence with which he expresses himself is largely responsible for other reviewers claiming that he comes across as self-glorifying and/or conceited. He does also, as others have mentioned, do a great deal of name dropping. If he were merely a celebrity hound reporting on every empty encounter with famous people, I could understand the objection. But such name dropping never came across as pointless or gratuitous. There are some passages where run-ins with adversaries seem potentially embellished, but since I'm neither psychic nor was I ever a fly on the wall during these alleged encounters, I can only speculate, and it did not in any way subtract from my reading experience.

I recommend this book because the two main goals I had in reading it were achieved:
1) To better understand how a fellow Westerner could get swept up in such a violent movement
2) To clear up my own lingering misconceptions of Islam and the difference between it and Islamism (descriptions of his parents and the evolution of his relationships with them, as well as his friendship with a girl named Fatima, were particularly helpful in this regard)

If you're looking for something that delves into which passages of the Qur'an are used to directly (and indirectly) support Islamists' ideology, this book might disappoint as it focuses mainly on the author's personal journey. For this, I suggest picking up a copy of Dr. Tawfik Hamid's book "Inside Jihad: Understanding and Confronting Radical Islam". It's worth noting that while Nawaz and Hamid share different experiences in terms of their recruitment, involvement, and ultimate retreat from Islamism, their ideals and proposals for education, discussion, and reform seem to be mostly in line with one another. I would even argue that both titles are equally important to read.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Author’s Search for an Identity 8 novembre 2013
Par Scott Haraburda - Publié sur
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.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 It Takes Courage to Reverse Course 5 octobre 2013

I found it gripping, courageous and very informative. As one who is involved in interreligious dialogue it clarified much of the confusion that surrounds Islam and Islamism, and raised hope that through education we can be better bridge builders to peace.
