The Age of Sacred Terror: Radical Islam's War Against America

The Age of Sacred Terror: Radical Islam's War Against America Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Winner of the 2004 Arthur Ross Book Award from the Council on Foreign Relations

From two of the worlds foremost experts on the new terrorism comes the definitive book on the rise of al-Qaeda and Americas efforts to combat the most innovative and dangerous terrorist group ever. Daniel Benjamin and Steven Simon trace the growth of radical Islam from its medieval origins and, drawing on their years of counter-terrorism work at the National Security Council, provide essential insights into the thinking of Usama bin Laden and his followers. With unique authority, they analyze why America was unable to defend itself against this revolutionary threat on September 11, 2001, why bin Ladens apocalyptic creed is gaining ground in the Islamic world, and what the United States must do to stop the new terror.
