This book examines the relationship between jihad and genocide, past and present. Richard L. Rubenstein, a respected scholar in the field of genocide studies, takes a close look at the violent interpretations of jihad and how they have played out in the past hundred years, from the Armenian genocide through current threats to Israel. Rubenstein's unflinching study of the potential for fundamentalist jihad to initiate targeted violence raises pressing questions in a time when questions of religious co-existence, particularly in the Middle East, are discussed urgently each day.
Richard L. Rubenstein is President Emeritus and Distinguished Professor of Religion at the University of Bridgeport. Rubenstein is the author of After Auschwitz, which is widely cited as initiating the discussion of the Holocaust in contemporary religious thought. He is also the author of The Cunning of History, The Age of Triage, and Approaches to Auschwitz.
