Through Our Enemies’ Eyes: Osama bin Laden, Radical Islam, and the Future of America, Revised Edition

  • ISBN13: 9781597971621
  • Condition: NEW
  • Notes: Brand New from Publisher. No Remainder Mark.

Product Description
This seminal work on modern terrorism assesses the changes and continuities in Osama bin Laden’s thinking since 2002. In order to win the war against terrorism, argues Michael Scheuer, former head of the CIA’s bin Laden Unit, we must first stop dismissing militant Muslims as “extremists” or “religious fanatics.” Formulating a successful military strategy requires that we see the enemy as they perceive themselves—highly trained and motivated soldiers who believe their cause is righteous. Scheuer shows that the war has accelerated the transformation of bin Laden and al Qaeda from man and organization to, respectively, a symbol of leadership and heroism and a worldwide movement.

Islam: The Straight Path Updated with New Epilogue, 3rd edition

Product Description
This updated version of Islam: The Straight Path includes a new Epilogue by John Esposito in which he addresses the impact 9/11 and its aftermath have had on both the Muslim and non-Muslim world, discussing Islam’s relationship to democracy and modernity and focusing more sharply on the origins and growth of extremism and terrorism in the name of Islam. This exceptionally successful survey text introduces the faith, belief, and practice of Islam from its earliest origins up to its contemporary resurgence. Esposito, an internationally renowned expert on Islam, traces the development of this dynamic faith and its impact on world history and politics, discussing the formation of Islamic belief and practice and chronicling the struggle of Muslims to define and adhere to their Islamic way of life. Lucidly written and expansive in scope, Islam: The Straight Path provides keen insight into one of the world’s least understood religions and is ideally suited for use in courses on Islam, comparative religions, and Middle Eastern history and culture.

The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Understanding Islam, 2nd Edition

  • ISBN13: 9781592572724
  • Condition: NEW
  • Notes: Brand New from Publisher. No Remainder Mark.

Product Description
An up-close and up-to-date look at an often misunderstood faith.

This completely revised and updated guide explores the tenets of the Qu’ran (a.k.a. Koran), examines the history of the religion and its relationship to Christianity and Judaism, and features an expanded section on the true story behind “jihad.” It explores Islamic views on war and terrorism, including the Muslim perspective on the tragic events of September 11, and the subsequent U.S. presence in both Afghanistan and Iraq.

• Excellent sales for the first edition
• Islam is the fastest growing religion in America, with more than six million devoted followers
• Features an expanded section on women in Islam, including their status within the Taliban, and the Islamic practice of polygamyAmazon.com Review
It may surprise readers to discover that Islam is the fastest-growing religion in the world, according to The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Islam. “However, even more eye-opening is the fact that Islam is the fastest growing religion in North America,” writes author Yahiya Emerick (How to Tell Others About Islam). Paradoxically, Islam is also one of the most misunderstood and maligned religions in North America. Fortunately, Emerick has written a viable antidote to the widespread confusion and ignorance. Using the Idiot’s Guide‘s formula of questions and answers, sidebars, and small, easy-to-digest essays, Emerick makes Islam accessible to anyone who is inclined to learn more about this influential religion. Readers have much to glean from this comprehensive and balanced guidebook–primarily that Islam is a prayerful, peace-loving religion that has been misused in the name of terror, just as Hitler and other extremists have misused Christianity throughout history. Emerick devotes an entire section to “Looking at Women in Islam,” in which readers can sort through even more misconceptions. The Idiot’s Guide title belies the integrity of the book, which is an important contribution for our times. –Gail Hudson
