About This Item

Dulles, Virginia: Brassey's, June 2004. Hardcover. First edition (stated) / number line runs to 3. A Fine book in a Fine jacket showing slight edgewear. Not from a library. No remainder mark. Not clipped. xxii + 309 pages.

The war on terror created near unanimity within the American press and political leadership that al Qaeda specifically and radical Islamism in general are stirred by a hatred of modernity. Nonsense, responds the author, former Chief of the CIA Counterterrorism Center's Bin Laden Station. Scheuer argues that Islamist insurgency (and not "terrorism") is the core of the conflict between the U.S. and Islamist forces, who in places such as Kashmir, Xinjiang, and Chechnya are "struggling not just for independence but against institutionalized barbarism." Contents: Some thoughts on the power of focused, principled hatred -- An unprepared and ignorant lunge to defeat--the United States in Afghanistan -- Not down, not out -- The world's view of Bin Laden -- Bin Laden views the world -- Blinding hubris abounding -- When the enemy sets the stage -- The way ahead.
