Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0230608647, Paperback)

Drawing from a variety of sources, this anthology encourages readers to explore the multiple dimensions of Islamic terrorism and seeks to promote a better understanding of one of the most complicated and urgent problems facing the world today. Divided into six parts, the book deals with the theological and ideological background of the concept of jihad, the policies and organization of Al Qaeda, various policy recommendations for combating terrorism, the motivations of suicide bombers, the dilemma jihadists pose in Western countries, and the adoption of classical European and anti-Semitic myths for political and religious gain in segments of the Muslim world. With excerpts ranging from works by Sayyid Qutb to Osama bin Laden to Nonie Darwish, this book is a must-have for anyone interested in or studying Islamic terrorism.  

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:18:23 -0400)

This is the first anthology designed to enhance the reader's understanding of the multiple dimensions of Islamic terrorism by presenting a cross-section of recent articles and selections from cutting-edge books on the subject.
