Return of the Caliphate – reasons and consequences

Magnus Norell | Hedengrens Bokhandel - Stockholm (Sweden) |


In December 2015, EFD Senior Fellow Magnus Norell published his book “Return of the Caliphate – reasons and consequences” where according to Kjell-Åke Nordquist, Associate Professor at Stockholm School of Theology, “… he writes accessibly and pithily on events of global dimensions that are still being analysed with the inadequate tools, comparisons and perspective of an awakening”. He adds “Norell wants to go deeper and provide a context – very much in short supply as regards knowledge of the Islamic State. The concluding reflection on the climate of debate in Sweden and Europe as regards Islamism, freedom of expression and how extreme movements can be resisted sets the book in a context of immediate concern that leaves no-one untouched. A highly recommendable book!”
