Pressestimmen"[S]erves both as a chronicle of the past 50 years of the Islamic 'reawakening' and a warning that Western responses to it are misguided and counter-productive." -Middle East Journal
"Selbourne...writes with an unusual and refreshing clarity and honesty....eminently worth reading -- and eminently worth passing on to the many, many pollyannas among us." - Jihad Watch
"[Selbourne's] argument is that no matter how you look at it, the economic, social and religious rise of Islam is motivated by a sense of Muslim determination to free their world from Western subordination: a determination which could hold wide-ranging impact for the West....essential reading for any definitive collection on terrorism of Middle East politics." - Midwest Book Review, Internet Bookwatch
