Lessons from the front line of Islamic fundamentalism by Megan Manson. Manson draws six conclusions (or lessons) from the books:

1. Secularism is crucial for a fair and democratic society.
2. Extremist ideology is volatile and viral.
3. Islamist extremists aren't necessarily devout or knowledgeable about Islam.
4. Yes, you can be a secularist and religious.
5. Education is everything.
6. 'British values' are a beacon for many.
