Representing Jihad: The Appearing and Disappearing Radical by Jacqueline O'Rourke
The jihad has been at the centre of the West's secularization discourse for more than a decade. It is used as a discursive tool to further a variety of agendas, from neoliberal to military to market. This perpetuates massive understanding between the West, Muslims, and jihadists themselves. Representing Jihad skillfully critiques the debate around the jihadist, arguing that Muslim theory and fiction have been commodified to cater to the needs of Western ideology.
