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

Not recommendedReviewed in the United Kingdom on 22 October 2018
Overall quality of book and paper poor.
This book was illuminating in ways unexpected. Excellent, valuable, a must read for anyone wanting to UNDERSTAND.Reviewed in the United States on 11 November 2017
Here's the problem - not one US media or discussion online delves into the real reasons WHY and WHAT to do. This book was illuminating in ways unexpected. Excellent, valuable, a must read for anyone wanting to UNDERSTAND. And, if you think that's just my opinion, read the reviews from some of the top world leaders and spies!
