Product description


Praise for Dr. Azeem Ibrahim

Ibrahim has a unique and valuable perspective on security strategy and counter-terrorism, and I believe would be a major contributor to public discourse and policy formulation in the area of fighting extremism.

--Michael Chertoff, former United States Secretary of Homeland Security

A factual history of where it all went wrong in the Islamic world.

Ibrahim's perspective and insights are central to our discussion. His contributions undoubtedly make this one of the most substantive dialogues to date.--Madeleine Albright

In a book that is part chronological religious history and part contemporary political science, Ibrahim offers a refreshingly nuanced approach rather than a jeremiad. Throughout the book, the author writes clearly and accessibly, and he provides summaries at the end of each chapter. His section on the antidotes to violence is especially lucid. Required reading for those who want to understand the connections between Muslims and terrorism.

The work that Ibrahim has undertaken and published is serious and high quality. The analysis and rigor he brings will provide a firm platform for actions by the professions and government over the years ahead.--Gordon Brown
