ON TERRORISM: Conversations with my Daughter
Aneesa Abbas Higgins, Tahar Ben Jelloun
Format: Paperback / softback
Publisher: HopeRoad Publishing Ltd
A POWERFUL AND TIMELY PLEA FOR TOLERANCE AND UNDERSTANDING. This is Tahar Ben Jelloun’s succinct explanation of the seductions and dangers of terrorism in the modern world.
Terrorism Explained to Our Kids, takes the form of a dialogue between the author and his teenage daughter. Using her ill-defined fears as the starting point, Exploring all forms of terrorism in both a historical and contemporary context, the book addresses complex and pressing questions in an everyday, accessible language. Because Ben Jelloun understands that terrorist acts come from the perpetrators’ deep sense of inadequacy, his arguments are all the more powerful. The author, himself a Muslim, places a high value on the importance of secular values, with which he believes Islam is compatible.
