“Aspects of Islamic Radicalization in the Balkans After the Fall of Communism” is the second volume in the series South-East European History (Peter Lang Book Series South-East European History), edited by Mihai Dragnea and published by Peter Lang on behalf of the Balkan History Association (BHA). The volume which was edited by Mihai Dragnea, Joseph Fitsanakis, Darko Trifunović, John M. Nomikos, Vasko Stamevski and Adriana Cupcea, explores the channels through which Islamic fundamentalism has spread among Muslims in the Balkans since the early 1990s. The authors collectively examine political and religious ties between Balkan Muslims and various private organizations and state institutions in Muslim states, with a particular focus on the reception of Salafism and its Saudi version, Wahhabism. The volume also addresses the ideological climate that has generated volunteers for Islamic State in recent years. It is the outcome of a research project of the Balkan History Association.

"An extraordinarily timely and germane assessment of the evolution of the transatlantic relationship and the identity and roles of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) in the European, Eura-sian, Greater Middle Eastern, and broader global security architecture in the wake of Russia's inter-vention in (and conduct of a war of choice against) Ukraine beginning in February 2022. Most sig-nificantly, the book is instructive in situating the historical strains of cooperation and discord be-tween the United States and its European allies within shifting strategic and geopolitical environ-ments that demand balance and in safeguarding often interconnected threats posed by global and regional adversaries, most notably Russia, China, Iran and North Korea on one hand, and transna-tional challenges such as climate change, cybersecurity, and Islamist extremist driven terrorism on the other. Further, the author is adept in identifying and explaining the links between those threats emphasized in the 2022 NATO Strategic Concept and the daunting challenges in achieving the req-uisite transatlantic unity to manage them effectively." --Robert J. Pauly, Jr., Professor of Interna-tional Development, The University of Southern Mississippi

"This is a timely contribution to deepen our understanding of how Russian and Chinese offensive maneuvers, along with the security risks posed by the current pandemic, climate change, terrorism, migration, and threats posed by hybrid war-fare are shaping NATO's strategic reorientation. Dolan also recognizes the internal threats to liberal democracies, namely the rise of illiberal political forces, in NATO member states and the challenges they pose to the Euro-Atlantic alliance. The book is clearly organized and includes the author's recommendations for NATO's effective path forward." --S. Mohsin Hashim, Professor of Political Science, Muhlenberg College

The Muslim Brotherhood’s “Secret Apparatus” is a clandestine incubator for Islamic terrorism, and it exports its “industry of death” to destroy the world through infiltration, disinformation, and jihad.

The world’s most dangerous terrorist group is not hiding in the caves of the Hindu Kush or in the Saharan wilderness—it operates inside the United States, and its members have sworn to fight eternal jihad. The Muslim Brotherhood is a fraternal cult inspired by the Order of the Assassins and modeled after Joseph Stalin’s Secret Apparatus. It’s an incubator for Islamic terrorist organizations, and it has implemented a one-hundred-year plan to destroy the West. The Muslim Brotherhood claims to be a reformist, non-violent political organization, but it is a terrorism apparatus with a political facade, which its ... Read more

acro29At the Great War raged in Europe, Athens, the city of the Acropolis, turned into a place of violence and political intrigue where nothing was or could be kept secret. This book reveals the activities of British, German, and French spymasters in 1914-1918. All spymasters, overzealous and amateurs, were involved in countless real and imagined plots at a time of constitutional crisis. The Anglophile Prime Minister Eleftherios Venizelos insisted that Greece join the Entente against the central powers. King Constantine demanded Greece remain neutral, to the strategic advantage of Kaiser Wilhelm II, whose sister, Sofia, he had married.
