[Autom. eng. transl.] The book reconstructs the emergence of jihadist networks in the Middle East and in Europe, shedding light on the intimate connections that support the narratives of sovereignty and terrorism typical of the contemporary world. Formed between wars and repressive regimes, and amplified by media and social media, terror controls territories and at the same time propagates itself molecularly through emulation. At the same time, challenged by jihadist violence and other transnational phenomena, national sovereignty adopts authoritarian responses, in the Middle East as in Europe. A paradox emerges: the liberal premises of the international order are breaking up, prefiguring the advent of a post-liberal phase to the detriment of multilateralism and "global governance"
