Author Glenn Robinson will speak on his recent book, Global Jihad: A Brief History (Stanford University Press, 2021) that provides an interpretive history of the phenomenon of global jihad. Robinson argues that global jihad has had four distinct iterations, each with its own initiating crises and each with its own distinctive ideological formulations. He also offers broad comparisons with other violent political movements over the past century, arguing that global jihad is best understood as a variant form of a movement of rage.
