AFTER SEPTEMBER 11, 2001...

...the federal government detained several hundred people suspected of terrorist involvement, and continued to search for hundreds more. Some were overseas, some were on the run, but most were already at home — in America.

Who are these people? Where did they come from? And how could there be so many terrorists or suspected terrorists living among us without action being taken? In American Jihad, Steven Emerson, the world's leading authority on domestic Islamic terrorist networks, tells the full story of the rise of those who wish to destroy the United States from within.

From the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center, to foiled attacks on the New York City subway system, to a stunning range of murders across the country, there were numerous warning signs that the "American Jihad" had been gaining momentum. With an up-to-the-minute afterword that explains the stops and starts of the post-9/11 investigation, American Jihad reveals the full story that only Emerson knows — and the reasons America failed to stop the most devastating attack in history on our own soil. This is a frightening and crucial book for anyone who needs to understand the threat within our borders.

Synopsis:

Eighteen months before the attacks of September 11, 2001, Steven Emerson issued an urgent warning about the spread of domestic Islamic terrorist networks and their destructive agendas in testimony before a Congressional subcommittee. American Jihad reveals how these international groups have gained footholds in places as close to home as Tucson, Los Angeles, Chicago, and New York City.

Emerson describes just how organizations use America's political freedoms to establish cells and training camps within ordinary communities. He offers startling information about the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center and the horrific events of 9/11, chronicles a host of politically motivated murders nationwide, and illustrates operations foiled by the American government — including an attempt to bomb the New York subway system. A new Afterword written for the paperback edition provides an overview of government efforts to monitor and defend against potential threats in this country and abroad.

Synopsis:

Leading the second wave of post 9/11 terrorist books, American Jihad reveals that America is rampant with Islamic terrorist networks and sleeper cells and Emerson, the expert on them, explains just how close they are to each of us.

Synopsis:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 255-270) and index.

Mr. Emerson's reputation for uncovering the kinds of facts you don't see, even on CNN, lends me to believe his book needs to be added to my collection as soon as possible. I note that the book he wrote some time ago, about the activities of the U.S. Army's Covert Division don't make the list of his works and I can only wonder why not?
