‘A welcome contribution to the comparative study of tribes and tribalism in the Arab Muslim world . . . Tribes and Global Jihadism is a rewarding example of a carefully edited book. The individual contributions cover complicated and controversial subjects in a clear, concise and readable fashion.’
‘Tribes and Global Jihadism adds colour and complexity to the usual binary ‘answers’ that have come to define the relationship between tribes and jihadist groups’ - Middle East Monitor
'Virginie Collombier and Olivier Roy have gathered some of the best specialists to study the complexity of the relationship between the tribal world and global jihadism. The result is a fascinating work combining comparative approach, field studies and innovative analysis, from Cameroon to Afghanistan.' - Jean-Pierre Filiu, Professor of Middle East Studies at Sciences Po; author of 'From Deep State to Islamic State' and 'Gaza: A History'
'An exceptional volume, shedding light on a contemporary puzzle: the intersection of tribes, transnational Salafism, and jihadism. The contributors authoritatively argue that these connections are defining but not pre-ordained or uniform, and offer the captivating point that while jihadists can manipulate tribalism, they cannot eliminate it.' - James Piscatori, Deputy Director at the Centre for Arab and Islamic Studies, Australian National University; co-author of 'Muslim Politics'
'Tribes and Global Jihadism offers a fine-grained yet wide-ranging analysis of the complex relationships between tribes and the various facets of global jihadism. Absorbing case studies by country experts offer fascinating insights into what shapes these interactions, making this book a must-read for those interested in the local and global dynamics of jihad.' - Sarah Marsden, Lecturer in Radicalisation and Protest in a Digital Age at Lancaster University; author of 'Reintegrating Extremists: 'Deradicalisation' and Desistance'
