9780151012138: Journey of the Jihadist: Inside Muslim Militancy

Renowned Middle Eastern expert Fawaz A. Gerges takes us into the mind-set of the jihadi--or holy warrior--that lies behind so many headlines yet remains nearly impenetrable to us. Using his firsthand knowledge of the "Arab street," he brings to life the stories of Kamal al-Said Habib, a founder of the Jihadist Movement, as well as dozens of other Islamic fundamentalists, as they struggle with the battle being waged for the soul of Islam.Journey of the Jihadist puts a human face to events of the last thirty years--from the civil war in Lebanon to the war in Iraq to the conflict in Lebanon today. This important work, now with a new afterword addressing the rise of Hezbollah, will join the ranks of those by Thomas L. Friedman, Fareed Zakaria, and Bernard Lewis.

Review:

PRAISE FOR JOURNEY OF THE JIHADIST"Many of the shortcomings of the war on terrorism can be viewed as stemming from the failure to understand the motives and belief systems of jihadist Muslims . . . Fortunately, there are academics like Fawaz Gerges."--THE VILLAGE VOICE"This book is essential reading for anyone seeking to understand the world of militant Islam--a subject that has never seemed more relevant."--MARY ANNE WEAVER, author of PAKISTAN: IN THE SHADOW OF JIHAD AND AFGHANISTAN
