Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0312425112, Paperback)
A Washington Post Book World Rave for 2005
In the aftermath of 9/11, Yaroslav Trofimov spent three years crisscrossing the Islamic world to create this unprecedented report. Mingling with ordinary Muslims, prominent clerics, and heads of state alike, he paints a ground-level picture of Islamic life as it is being changed by the Western war on terror. A sensitive, provocative portrait of a critical period in Muslim history, Faith at War introduces surprising ties between the Islamic world and our own.

Drawing on reporting from nine Islamic countries, Faith at War offers a portrait of the Muslim world after September 11. Inverting the question of what "they" have done to "us," Yaroslav Trofimov examines the unprecedented American intrusion in the Muslim heartland and the ripples it has caused far beyond the battlefields of Afghanistan and Iraq. What emerges is a portrait of people, faith, and countries better known in caricature than reported detail. The ordinary Muslims, influential clerics, warlords, jihadis, intellectuals, and heads of state we meet are engaged in conversations that reveal the Muslim world to us from a new, unexpected perspective.
