Frauen im Dschihad – Salafismus als transnationale Bewegung
Religious Fundamentalism in the Age of Pandemic
- The multidisciplinary anthology Religious Fundamentalism in the Age of Pandemic provides deep insights concerning the current impact of Covid-19 on various religious groups and believers around the world. Based on contributions of well-known scholars in the field of Religious Fundamentalism, the contributors offer about a window into the origins of religious fundamentalism and the development of these movements as well as the creation of the category itself. Further recommendations regarding specific (fundamentalist) religious groups and actors and their possible development within Buddhism, Christianity, Islam and Judaism round up the discussion about the rise of Religious Fundamentalism in the Age of Pandemic.

Prevention of Violent Extremism in Western Muslim Diasporas
- At the present time, various forms of violent extremism in the left- and right-wing as well as in the jihadist milieus seem to increase all over the world. This development produces a lot of concerns within Western societies and is often fueled by populist actors in terms of their own purposes. The present book seeks to clarify the real situations and possible threats that are currently occurring with regard to the three considered violent extremist movements in Belgium, Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, Great Britain, The Netherlands and the United States of America (USA).
‘Militant Islam’ vs. ‘Islamic Militancy’? Religion, Violence, Category Formation and Applied Research. Contested Fields in the Discourses of Scholarship (co-ed. with Prof. Dr. Klaus Hock)
- Discourses on ‘radical Islam’, on ‘Islamic extremism’, or on ‘religious violence’ in Islamic contexts are en vogue – in and beyond academia. But in view of the highly contested topic of political Islam, the challenge starts already with the preferred terminology. What actually are we talking about when we talk about ‘salafism’, ‘jihadism’, ‘Islamic terrorism’, etc.?
This edited volume provides a collection of contributions (e.g. Hans G. Kippenberg, Alex P. Schmid and Reinhard Schulze) that due to their respective academic cultures and disciplinary locations display a multifaceted variety of approaches to the research field and its subject.

Salafismus in Deutschland – Entstehung und Transformation einer radikal-islamischen Bewegung
Preface: Prof. Dr. Dr. Peter Antes
This monography provides deep insights into the historical development of the German Jihadist and Salafist Scene. In addition it contributes information about the case of Abu Waala, the Iraqi representative of Daesh in Germany. Furthermore, it draws a picture of the possible development of the DITB, the largest Muslim (Diaspora) Community in Germany with roots in Turkey.
Publication of my dissertation The contemporary Salafi Scene in Germany – Preachers and Adherents. This empirical study is the first basic research about the current Salafi Movement in Germany so far. I conducted 1o5 interviews with considerable Salafi-Preacher and Salafi-Actor in Germany. It shows for instance their social backgrounds, their aims to become adherents of the Salafi Movement and – in parts – their interests of taking part in the so called Jihad in Syria and Iraq. Based on the empiricism of the conducted interviews, this survey gives several de-radicalisation-recommendations and prevention-approaches for the theory and for the practice as well.
