Welcome


Welcome to my website and I hope you take a look at my new book, The Hollow Kingdom: ISIS and the Cult of Jihad. The book explores the birth of ISIS and how it has spread around the world. Aimed at the general reader wishing to understand the most dangerous terrorist group in modern history, The Hollow Kingdom deconstructs Islamic State’s ideology, funding and global recruitment network. It examines ISIS’ ideological roots in Saudi Wahhabism and how that has fanned the fires of extremism. Now that ISIS’ so-called Caliphate has been destroyed by the coalition, the next step must be to destroy the idea behind it; as ISIS seeks to evolve and take its fight into new theatres in Asia, the West and North Africa.

But the threat from religious extremism is not a modern day phenomenon, nor is it something that afflicts Islam alone. My first book Holy Warriors explores the issue within Hinduism, Sikhism, Christianity and Islam. Finally, The Last Jews of Kerala explores how tensions within a single religious community can lead to self-destruction. What is it like to be the last of your kind after two thousand years of history?

I’d like to hear from you so get in touch.
