Review:

Investigative journalist and documentary filmmaker Berger lifts the veil on the phenomenon of American jihadists in this timely and chilling examination. Berger's expose painstakingly lays out the scope and character of the American jihadist movement and points the way to a national debate on solutions. "Publishers Weekly"

"Jihad Joe" is a hell of a book authoritatively reported, well sourced, and painstakingly researched. This is required reading for anyone seeking to understand the true nature of the terrorist threat that confronts us. Berger has succeeded in producing a timely work that will tell readers something they didn t know about the topic, whether they are everyday people or those well versed in the subject. Josh Meyer, former terrorism/national security reporter, "Los Angeles Times", and director of education and outreach, Medill National Security Journalism Initiative, Northwestern University

A fascinating journey into the rise, expansion, and future of American jihadism. J. M. Berger goes beyond the Awlaki mania to investigate firsthand the changing nature of the terrorist threat to the United States. Jean-Charles Brisard, former chief investigator for the 9/11 families lawsuits--Jean-Charles Brisard"

A must-read insight into America s Muslim holy warriors. J. M. Berger tracked down the families and former associates of U.S. citizens who turned to jihad and violence, and asked a key question: why? Jihad Joe is meticulously researched and refreshingly free of rhetoric. David Hebditch, documentary filmmaker and coauthor of How to Stage a Military Coup--David Hebditch"

Josh Meyer, former terrorism/national security reporter, Los Angeles Times, and director of education and outreach, Medill National Security Journalism Initiative, Northwestern University--Josh Meyer"

"At a time when some politicians and pundits blur the line between Islam and terrorism, Berger, who knows this subject far better than the demagogues, sharply cautions against vilifying Muslim Americans. "Extreme and indiscriminate anti-Muslim rhetoric helps to validate the worldview of our enemies - the premise that America's wars are indeed wars against Islam," Berger writes. "You cannot tell someone, 'You are my enemy, ' and then blame them for believing you."

It is a timely warning from an expert who has not lost his -perspective."--Scott Shane, New York Times Book Review--Scott Shane"New York Times Book Review" (06/26/2011)

"How these American jihadists became radicalized, recruited and trained, and the types of terrorist activities they conducted (and still engage in) whether abroad or in America, constitute the core of Mr. Berger's important book."--Joshua Sinai, Washington Times Book Review--Joshua Sinai"Washington Times Book Review" (07/05/2011)
