Through Our Enemies' Eyes: Osama Bin Laden, Radical Islam, and the Future of America Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This is the one book all Americans must read in order to truly understand the reasons radical Muslims like Osama bin Laden and his followers have declared war on America and the West. Furthermore, this is the only book to accurately describe the severity of the threat they will continue to pose, with or without bin Laden's leadership, to our national security.

In order to win the war against terrorism, the author argues that we must first stop dismissing militant Muslims as "extremists" or "religious fanatics." Formulating a successful military strategy requires that we must see the enemy as they perceive themselves — highly trained and motivated soldiers who fervently believe their cause is righteous. The author describes how militants throughout the Islamic world are enraged by what they believe is Western aggression against their people, religion, and culture. Though bin Laden declared war on America years ago — not once but twice — the author argues that American complacence in the face of such violent threats stems from the increasing secularization and moral relativism of American society and culture. Even if bin Laden is brought to justice, the author warns, the dangers posed by radical Islamic militants will not disappear, and we must be prepared for a protracted war against terrorism. This is an important book that will make a major impact on how America thinks about its enemy and itself.

Review:

"Anonymous?s examination of al Qaeda is a bracing corrective to much that has passed as analysis about the group." The Washington Post

Review:

"A highly informative analysis." The Washington Times

Review:

"...a work of uncommon analytical acuity and perspicacity . . .likely to become a classic in the literature on terrorism." Bruce Hoffman, author of Inside Terrorism, and Editor-in-Chief of Studies in Conflict and Terrorism

Book News Annotation:

The credentials provided for the anonymous author of this in- depth history of Bin Laden and other radical Islamic groups state that he's a senior US intelligence official who's specialized in Afghanistan and South Asia, and that he's written on British imperial history. It seems the author's senior colleagues found the book gave too much strength of character to Bin Laden (without in any way agreeing with his tactics) and for this reason the author has published the work anonymously. The author explains carefully the context in which Bin Laden grew up, lived, and the issues that move him with stress throughout on his profound religious convictions.

Synopsis:

Reveals why America was so profoundly unprepared for the murderous attacks of September 11 and how we can prevent similar events from happening again
