Since September 11, 2001, interest in and concern with things Islamic has reached unprecedented levels in the United States and much of the World. Academics and policymakers have been hauled in front of microphones and television cameras, looking very much like deer caught in headlights in their efforts to explain the context in which the Al Qaeda phenomena emerged. And it is a daunting task, both because of the complexity of the subject matter and because so little is known about Islam by the general population.

This book is highly useful too academic researchers and members of the general public who seek answers to questions pertaining to the subject of Islamism.
