The Center for the Study of Force and Diplomacy (CENFAD) at Temple University is proud to present a lecture and question-and-answer session with Glenn E. Robinson, Professor of Defense Analysis at the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, California!
Dr. Robinson is the author of several publications, including journal articles and encyclopedia chapters, alongside reports and research monographs for the US Agency for International Development (USAID) and the RAND Corporation. He has also advised the US Department of Defense (DoD) and US Central Command (USCENTCOM) on various aspects of Middle Eastern, African, and Central Asian policy. His lecture is based on his recently-published book Global Jihad: A Brief History (Stanford University Press, 2021). In the upcoming lecture, Robinson contends that there have been four distinct waves of global jihad in the past four decades, comparing these to other Islamist and non-Islamist violent political movements during the last century to argue for the concept of "movements of rage."
We hope to see you there!
