World Almanac of Islamism


The American Foreign Policy Council, a DC based think-tank, has recently released the online version of its World Almanac of Islamism.  It is a very useful first stop for researchers and others interested in the different forms of Islamism, and how they have developed on a global scale.

The site, currently in its Beta version, is here.   It will also soon be released as a hard copy, and can be pre-ordered here

I was lucky enough to be asked to write the UK section of the guide, which can be seen here.
