Warp Films Four Lions Background Reading

Four Lions:
Background Reading

 

We've received many enquiries for background material on the film so taking the Quran as given, here's a selection of good and readable books.

Al Qaeda - Jason Burke
Extremely good introduction to the evolution and radicalization of political islam. Detailed and readable.
 
No God but God - Reza Aslan
Brilliant primer on the complex history of Islam.
 
Desperately Seeking Paradise - Ziauddin Sardar
A witty anecdotal account of one man's quest to discover his own faith shedding light on a huge range of islamic thought and practice.
 
Masterminds of Terror - Yosri Fouda & Nick Fielding
Pacey background to the 9/11 attacks based around a cloak and dagger interview with Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and Ramzi Bin Alshibb in which they claim responsibility for the lot.
 
Perfect Soldiers -Terry  McDermott
The story of the Hamburg cell, the key characters and how they came to plan and execute the 911 attacks.

Understanding Terror Networks - Marc Sageman
Authoritative insight into the group dynamics of modern jihadi cells from an ex CIA case officer, psychologist and security adviser.
 
Milestones - Sayyid Qtub
A key polemic in the evolution of modern radical islamic ideology written by Sayid Qtub while in gaol in Egypt.
 
Enemy Combatant - Moazzam Begg / Victoria Brittain
Approachable and often humourous Guantanamo detainee's biography focussing on his time in detention in afghanistan and cuba.

The Secret Agent - Joseph Conrad
Buffoons, sociopaths, incandescent ideologues, gullible bourgeoisie, agents provocateurs and a prototype suicide bomber - all skewered perfectly in Conrad's story of terrorism in 19th century London .

Generation Kill - Evan Wright
Brilliantly drawn and frequently ludicrous group dynamics in a US Recon Unit shooting their way into Iraq in 2003.

Murder in Amsterdam - Ian Buruma
The murder of the Dutch film maker and provocateur Theo Van Gogh and a clear exploration of its context.

Occidentalism - Ian Buruma & Avishai Margalit

A short history of anti western thought and how it relates to modern islamic terrorism.
