Description

Who is the Jihadist? The author explores these questions in a sensitive portrait. Recounting the trials of a young man, disenfranchised and disconnected from his surroundings, the Jihadist in this story is not what he appears to be. Struggling to find his place in the world, he must confront his desire for reckless abandon-a surrender to chaotic forces which he sees as inherent to Nature and integral to Truth-and wrestle with violent fantasies of revenge, while he considers if vengeance might not be intrinsic to his idea of justice. All this time, he seeks something "beyond and bigger than ourselves" to give his life its meaning and expatiate existential guilt. He seeks, only to be tempted by the glory promised through War that History offers him.show more
