About this book
Trade paperback. A hard-hitting memoir of how Nawaz went from being an extremist member of the Islamist group the Liberation Army, to embracing democratic ideals, after 4 years in an Egyptian jail. He co-founded The Quilliam Foundation with feller former Islamist author Ed Husain.
Born and raised in Essex, Maajid Nawaz was recruited into politicised Islam as a teenager. He was recruited into Hizb ut-Tahrir (the Liberation Party) where he played a leading role in the shaping and dissemination of an aggressive anti-West narrative. This title provides an account of his life inside and out of Islamic extremism.
