Not everyone likes to do it but I love researching, analyzing and weaving things together into a narrative that is both engaging and evidence-based. When I was taking time off from the 3 social enterprises I co-founded to focus on writing my book, Compassionate Counterterrorism: The Power of Inclusion In Fighting Fundamentalism, I often found myself in that meditative flow state I had only read about. Words would come pouring out, and the sun would set before I realized I hadn't eaten lunch yet!
I wrote Compassionate Counterterrorism with the intention of accelerating global peacefulness. Even if you haven't read my book, I hope that by sharing all of the sources I used, I can accelerate your own research to advance our collective mission in this endeavor. You can get an idea of what my book's about by downloading a sample chapter here, or you can buy it. The sources are listed below by chapter so you'll get an idea of the theme/topic of most chapters. If the links don't work, trying manually searching the articles or reports referenced as urls sometimes change.
So, here it is. These are some of the best books and research sources on terrorism, countering violent extremism (CVE) and peacebuilding through the lens of social innovation. Because of the interdisciplinary nature of the book, you'll find that the sources encompass politics, peace and security, business, social entrepreneurship, neuroscience, ethics, law, Islam, sustainable development and spirituality.
