Review:

"A tour de force. . . . Any reader will come away from this book with a better frame of reference for assessing today's headlines." --The Kansas City Star

"Holy War brings compassion, objectivity, breadth, and imagination to the most urgent crisis of our time." --The Boston Phoenix

"Erudite, balanced, and lucidly written. . . . [Provides] a mine of useful information on Muslim-Western perceptions of each other. . . . An important book." --Library Journal
