"This tightly organized and superbly edited volume on radicalization reveals the development, application, and effects of the term's post 9/11 adoption in the Netherlands (its point of origin) and Belgium. The book offers a compelling analysis of a key political term for our times, one with broad applicability and implication well beyond Northern Europe. An exemplary analysis for anyone interested in critical security studies, contemporary political and critical theory, and European studies." -- David Theo Goldberg, Director and Distinguished Professor, University of California
"A superb collection of critical scholarship that powerfully locates the origins of today's 'age of radicalisation' in discursive shifts in the Netherlands and Belgium over the last twenty years." -- Arun Kundnani, Visiting Assistant Professor, New York University -- Steinhardt
"In a world increasingly defined, and divided, by a naive and interested opposition between `democratic citizens' and `radical terrorists,' this collection interrogates the assumptions that sustain this opposition while providing concrete insight into the histories and politics of de/radicalization in the Netherlands and Belgium. It will be an essential point of departure for scholars and policymakers in the field for years to come." -- Elizabeth Shakman Hurd, Professor, Northwestern University
