Rate this:
In the wake of the Paris, Beirut, and San Bernardino terrorist attacks, fears over homegrown terrorism have surfaced to a degree not seen since September 11, 2001 -- especially following the news that all of the perpetrators in Paris were European citizens. A sought-after commentator in France and a widely respected international scholar of radical Islam, Farhad Khosrokhavar has spent years studying the path towards radicalization, focusing particularly on the key role of prisons--based on interviews with dozens of Islamic radicals, as incubators of a particular brand of outrage that has yielded so many attacks over the past decade.
