Extremism does not happen in a vacuum. Rather, extremism is a relative concept that often emerges in crisis situations, taking shape within the tense and contradictory relations that tie marginal spaces, state orders, and mainstream culture. This collected volume brings together leading anthropologists and cultural analysts to offer a concise look at the narratives, symbolic, and metaphoric fields related to extremism, systematizing an approach to extremism, and placing these ideologies into historical, political, and geo-systemic contexts.

Giacomo Loperfido is an invited Professor at the Department of Social Anthropology, University of Barcelona. He has held previous positions at the University of Fort Hare, the Centre for Humanities Research, and University of the Western Cape.
