Sindre Bangstad provides us with an important analysis to allow us to understand the tragic events of Norway's 22/7. This book is essential reading for all those who want to understand racism and the rise of the anti-Islam far right in contemporary Europe. * Professor Maleiha Malik, King's College London *
Disappointingly few lessons have been learnt from the atrocities of the right-wing terrorist attack of 22 July 2011 in Norway, but Sindre Bangstad is intent on teaching us some. He does so with erudition, verve and gusto in this authoritative book, which shows that far from being merely the act of a deluded individual, the terrorist attack has to be understood in the context of radical Islamophobia. It says something not about individual psychology but about ideology and politics in today's Europe. An important book. * Professor Thomas Hylland Eriksen, Department of Social Anthropology, University of Oslo *
Anders Breivik and the Rise of Islamophobia' is an important book. Its theoretical and analytical approaches elegantly combine with a rich data presentation to elucidate a horrible * trend in Europe.' *
