Product description

Islam expert Robert Spencer reveals Islam's ongoing, unshakable quest for global conquest and why the West today faces the same threat as the Crusaders did--and what we can learn from their experience. A clarion call for the defense of the West before it is too late." -- Ibn Warraq, author "A much-needed antidote to the poisonous propaganda that compromises our current battle against jihadist murder." -- Bruce Thornton, historian "An enormous amount of well-researched material. Throws the ball back into the camp of Arabist historians." -- Walid Phares, terror analyst "Assails, with much erudition, the taboos imposed by the Politically Correct League." -- Bat Ye'or, historian "The courageous Robert Spencer busts myths and tells truths about jihadists that no one else will tell." -- Michelle Malkin, bestselling author and columnist

Customer reviews

By a Book Depository customer 10 Dec 2008 3

"This is probably the best quick-intro to Islamic history I've seen. It's full of references to Islamic scripture and relevant books, and it's organized in a way that makes it easy to navigate. There's no doubt that Spencer is taking sides, as usual. He stands for democracy, pluralism and freedom, and his mission is to warn us of what challenges our most cherished values. Knowing the background of the Jihad movement is invaluable in this effort. The book is an easy read, quite a page-turner. It tried to cover a lot of ground in not too many pages, and obviously cannot get too much into detail. This makes Spencer's book easily digestable for many. Some might prefer the similar, but more scholary "Sword of the Prophet" by Serge Trifkovic."
