Extremism is spiraling out of control. Unable to stem recruitment, we seem doomed to a worsening struggle with a constantly evolving enemy that remains several steps ahead of us. Meanwhile, current policies seem as if they were carefully calibrated not to reduce extremist violence, but to encourage it.

But while most policymakers don’t realize it, we actually possess the means right now to inoculate communities against extremist ideologies. In Why the Extremists Will Lose, Farah Pandith shows us how we can do just that. Based on thousands of discussions, interviews, and focus groups she’s held around the world, as well as her own high-level experience on the National Security Council, at the State Department and on the Homeland Security Advisory Council, Pandith exposes the surprising root causes and dynamic by which Muslim millennials are pulled toward extremism. She also reveals exactly how that dynamic can be profoundly disrupted, incapacitating the abilities of radicals to turn youths toward violence—a strategy that requires dispensing with outdated twentieth-century policy approaches, drawing instead on the expertise and resources of diplomats, corporate leaders, mental health experts, sociologists, entrepreneurs, and most of all, Muslim youth themselves.
