(First paragraph)

This issue of IS features four articles and two book review essays. Norman K. Swazo’s engaging article, “Jihadists Wrong Themselves Morally: An Islamic-Aristotelian Interpretation,” evaluates the current status of the so called “radical Islamism” from an ethical perspective as articulated by George Hourani. According to the author, Hourani’s work is important because of his philosophical grounding in both Western and Islamic thought and because of his effort to relate an Islamic interpretation to the moral philosophy of Aristotle. Swazo maintains that Hourani’s interpretation provides a reasonably defensible account enabling a moral evaluation of jihadist actions. Swazo further articulates his theoretical account by considering a well-known police action in Bangladesh to prove the historical significance and contemporary relevance of this debate.
