From Rushdie to 7/7: The Radicalisation of Islam in Britain
by Anthony McRoy
Pp. 236. Social Affairs Unit, 2006
Hardback, 20

The Social Affairs Unit is today publishing a new book by Anthony McRoy, From Rushdie to 7/7: The Radicalisation of Islam in Britain. This is the first book to offer an authoritative and comprehensive overview of what has led to the radicalisation of Islam in Britain. The book analyses the key events - including the Rushdie, Gulf and Bosnian crises, the second Palestinian intifada, 9/11 and the Iraq War - which have led to this radicalisation.

From Rushdie to 7/7 explains how this radicalisation created the environment for the 7/7 bombings. The book also explains the various religious and ideological bases for Islamic attitudes to jihad and democracy.

From Rushdie to 7/7 also offers a comprehensive overview of Islamic groups in the UK. It explains the different standpoints and histories of groups from the Muslim Council of Britain via the Muslim Association of Britain to Hizb ut-Tahrir and the supporters of Abu Hamza and Omar Bakri Muhammad.

From Rushdie to 7/7: The Radicalisation of Islam in Britain can be ordered directly from the Social Affairs Unit, or from amazon.co.uk, or through any UK bookshop.
