Rudolph Peters presents a diverse, yet coherent selection of sources on the topic. His own analyses are well-informed and highly respectful of how nuanced the institution of Jihad is. Especially refreshing is the absence of a post-9/11 agenda, in contrast to other recent books.

Rudolph Peters presents a diverse, yet coherent selection of sources on the topic. The book traces the evolution of Jihad throughout Islamic history by presenting a progression of sources from various times and places. Admittedly, this is a relatively short read and therefore limited in scope. But the sources are well-chosen and provide an effective foundation for further study.

The notion of Jihad ("Holy War") is very much alive in the Islamic world, and plays a prominent political role. In the West, Jihad is often associated with violence and fanaticism. Muslims, however, emphasize that the real meaning is "effort toward a religiously commendable aim" and that it can be applied to both defensive warfare and peaceful activities for the sake of religion.The aim of the present book is to elucidate the concept of Jihad. It provides basic reading materials translated from Arabic and Turkish, an introduction, and two essays on modernist and fundamentalist interpretations and the significance of Jihad nowadays.

"Jihad in Classical and Modern Islam: A Reader" by Rudolph Peters, (First ed.: 1996; Second ed.: 2005).

See 3rd edition (2016) with revised cover title of: "Jihad: A History in Documents" (with new different ISBN), which contains same nine chapters in earlier eds. but adds two new chapters:

Chapter 10: The notion of jihad at the turn of the 21st Century, and
Chapter 11: Jihad after 9/11: The Islamic State in Iraq and Syria

At a time when "scholars" and journalists are churning out books on Islam like clockwork, it has become alarmingly difficult to find an broad, balanced survey of Jihad, with its many meanings and applications. Rudolph Peters presents a diverse, yet coherent selection of sources on the topic. His own analyses are well-informed and highly respectful of how nuanced the institution of Jihad is.

Especially refreshing is the absence of a post-9/11 agenda, in contrast to other recent books. The book traces the evolution of Jihad throughout Islamic history by presenting a progression of sources from various times and places.

Admittedly, this is a relatively short read and therefore limited in scope. But the sources are well-chosen and provide an effective foundation for further study.
