Apocalypse, Revolution and Terrorism : From the Sicari to the American Revolt against the Modern World, Paperback / softback Book

Apocalypse, Revolution and Terrorism : From the Sicari to the American Revolt against the Modern World Paperback / softback

Part of the Political Violence series

Paperback / softback


This book focuses on religiously driven oppositional violence through the ages.

Beginning with the 1st-century Sicari, it examines the commonalities that link apocalypticism, revolution, and terrorism occurring in Judaism, Christianity, and Islam past and present.

It is divided into two sections, 'This was Then' and 'This is Now', which together examine the cultural and religious history of oppositional violence from the time of Jesus to the aftermath of the 2016 American election.

The historical focus centers on how the movements, leaders and revolutionaries from earlier times are interpreted today through the lenses of historical memory and popular culture.

The radical right is the primary but not exclusive focus of the second part of the book.

At the same time, the work is intensely personal, in that it incorporates the author's experiences in the worlds of communist Eastern Europe, in the Iranian Revolution, and in the uprisings and wars in the Middle East and East Africa.

This book will be of much interest to students of religious and political violence, religious studies, history, and security studies.
