About the Author

Baris Cayli is a fellow of the Royal Society of Arts and visiting professor at LUMSA University.


"The great strength of Violence and Militants is the way in which it utilizes the concepts of both cultural and structural violence and applies them to different instances of violence committed by militant groups across time and space. The comparison of the Ottoman rebellions with contemporary militant jihadist groups is unique and provides a different vantage point from which to view militant groups in varying sociopolitical contexts." Monica Ingber, Coventry University and author of The Politics of Conflict: Transubstantiatory Violence in Iraq
"Baris Cayli's approach through the prism of cultural and structural violence brings the kind of comparative study that I haven't seen anywhere else." Christophe Chowanietz, John Abbott College and author of Bombs, Bullets, and Politicians: France's Response to Terrorism
"A serious-minded and sophisticated treatment of a controversial and significant subject." Richard English, Queen's University Belfast and author of Does Terrorism Work?: A History
"Violence and Militants offers the reader an exciting journey to uncover the ravages of catastrophe." Jeffrey Ian Ross, University of Baltimore and author of Political Terrorism: An Interdisciplinary Approach
"Violence and Militants is an insightful analysis focused on a key question: How do violent organizations and groups justify their use of violence in different times and places? In this empirically rich study Baris Cayli explores how structural and cultural violence operate in premodern and contemporary social contexts. Homing in on the behaviour of rebels and state authorities in the Ottoman world as well as violent organizations of today, this book offers a novel interpretation of the social processes involved in the rationalization and use of violence." Sinisa Malesevic, University College Dublin
"An in-depth look at a complicated topic, Violence and Militants examines the history of destabilizing groups in the Middle East from revolts against the Ottoman Empire to ISIS. Anyone seeking to better understand the state of affairs in the Middle East would be well-advised to read this." Jo Neiderhoff, San Francisco Book Review
