A Brief History of Islamism is a 16-page booklet which provides an accessible introduction to key Islamist movements and their ideas. The publication is the first in Quilliam’s new ‘Concept Series’ of short and easily-digestible publications which will help people better understand the nature of the Islamist threat in the world today. The booklet narrates the story of Islamism; from the Wahhabism and the birth of Al- Qaeda to the 9/11 terrorist attack. It focuses on the emergence of Islamist movements such as Jamaat-i-Islami, the Muslim Brotherhood, and Hizb ut-Tahrir and shows how their political ideology, when combined with puritanical Saudi Wahhabism, helped to create modern Jihadism.
