Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0934667136, Paperback)

Researched from primary documents, the authors focus on the Hebrew and Christian antecedents to Holy War and how it was initially viewed by Mohammad before he sought to conquer the world for Allah. Osama bin Laden his biographed in light of the bin Laden's family's capitalism growing from Saudi construction to the Binladen holdings in Texas where revenues were placed in the war chest of the Bush family both for political advancement and oil interests.

The authors review the close ties of the Bush family and international oil and energy, with special attention to the role that the current Bush Administration plays in American expansion of oil interests across central Asia. Condoleezza Rice, George H. W. Bush, Colin Powell, and the Bush II Cabinet is scrutinized for their role in pushing the Afghan War and their involvement in the financial dealings of Texas senators Gramm and Hutchinson.

Chapters rifle in on the al-qaida, bin Laden Fatwas, the Afghanistan Northern Alliance, religious fundamentalism in the USA and the Islamic World, and more. Richly detailed and illustrated.
