Hello all. For the first time since the summer of 2011 this site will be going on a hiatus. Jihadology will return with new jihādī primary source materials in 2013. Similar to previous years, I have scheduled a series of posts related to books, academic journal articles, think tank/NGO/policy/governmental reports and articles of the year as well as books I’m looking forward to coming out in 2013. These scheduled posts will be running Monday through Friday over the next two weeks. For previous end of the year series see 2011 and 2010. Hope everyone has an enjoyable holiday and new year.
