The true story of one man’s journey to Islamic fundamentalism and back Raised in a devout but quiet Muslim community in London, at sixteen Ed Husain was presented with an intriguing political interpretation of Islam known as fundamentalism. Lured by these ideas, he committed his life to them. Five years later, he rejected extremism and tried to return to a normal life. But soon he realized that Islamic fundamentalists pose a threat that most people—Muslim and non- Muslim alike—simply don’t understand. Based on first-hand experiences and written with pervasive clarity, The Islamistdelivers a rare inside glimpse of the devious methods used to recruit new members, and offers profound insight into the appeal fundamentalism has for young Muslims in the Western world.

In the 1990s Ed Husain was a fundamentalist.nbsp;nbsp;Active in three major Islamist organizations in Britain, including Hizb-ut-Tahrir, a group banned in many countries around the world and currently under threat of being banned in Britain, he was recruited when he was sixteen.nbsp; Five years later, after a period ofnbsp;intense personal turmoil, Ed rejected Islamic fundamentalism. This is the first time he has spoken about his experiences.nbsp;
