With a simple and methodical story-like style, “Looming Black Shadows: The Rise of Terrorist States and the New Generation of al-Qaeda” (published by Partridge India) helps readers understand the events in the evolution of Islamic terrorism, specifically al-Qaeda. It addresses the different aspects of the terrorist movement and the socio-political and religious background that shaped the group.

“(The) world could not recognize the threat (of terrorism) until a vast part of Syria and Iraq fell to a marauding extremist army of ISIL, a regional malignant mutation of original Al-Qaeda,” author Sawad Hadi explains. “Not many assessments of these new developments were available. Repeating (the) mistakes (and) painful lessons from history in the modern world was shocking and clueless.”

Diving deep into the anatomy of terror breeding grounds, symptoms of an impending religious extremist movement, the roots of dangerous religious reinterpretations, the psychology of extremists and various elusive sponsors of world terror networks, “Looming Black Shadows” examines these threats and suggests ways to slow their progress.

Through his work, Hadi hopes his readers come away with an “Understanding (of) what went wrong in history and (the) awareness not to repeat the mistakes of history.”
