Reviews

"[A] thoughtful analysis of America's War on Terror." --The New Yorker

"Offers a very persuasive argument for the best way to counter jihadism."--The Washington Post

"[Reza] Aslan dissects a complex subject (terrorism and globalization) and distills it with a mix of narrative writing, personal anecdotes, reportage and historical analysis."--San Francisco Chronicle

"Aslan is not only a perspicuous, thoughtful interpreter of the Muslim world but also a subtle psychologist of the call to jihad."--Los Angeles Times

"[A] meaty analysis of the rise of Jihadism . . . dispels common misconceptions of the War on Terror age."--San Jose Mercury News

"It is Aslan's great gift to see things clearly, and to say them clearly, and in this important new work he offers us a way forward. He is prescriptive and passionate, and his book will make you think."--Jon Meacham, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of American Lion
