504    Includes bibliographical references (pages 221-284) and 
520    "Why have some ideologically-inspired Islamists been able 
       to build state-like polities out of civil war stalemate, 
       while many other armed groups have failed to gain similar 
       traction? What makes jihadists win? In Jihad & Co., Aisha 
       Ahmad argues that there are concrete economic reasons 
       behind Islamist success. By tracking the economic 
       activities of jihadist groups in Afghanistan, Somalia, 
       Pakistan, Mali, and Iraq, she uncovers an unlikely actor 
       in bringing Islamist groups to power: the local business 
       community.  To illuminate the nexus between business and 
       Islamist interests in civil war, Ahmad journeys into war-
       torn bazaars to meet with both jihadists and the smugglers
       who financed their rise to power. From the arms markets in
       the Pakistani border region to the street markets of 
       Mogadishu, their stories reveal a powerful economic logic 
       behind the rise of Islamist power in civil wars. Behind 
       the fiery rhetoric and impassioned, ideological claims is 
       the cold, hard cash of the local war economy. Moving 
       readers back and forth between mosques, marketplaces, and 
       battlefields, Ahmad makes a powerful argument that 
       economic savvy, as much as ideological fervor, explains 
       the rise of militant jihadism across the modern Muslim 
       world'--|cProvided by publisher
