“[A] lucid exposition of how jihadism filled the vacuum created by the collapse of the caliphate after World War I.” ―Fred Siegel in The New York Sun
“Phares peels away the layers of misunderstanding about the jihadists that led to America's unpreparedness for what happened on September 11.” ―The Washington Times
“[Phares's] book is especially useful in detailing the denial of radical Islamism's threat before September 11.” ―Barry Rubin, Claremont Review of Books
“Remarkable . . . [Phares has] spent his life studying the jihad movement. He distilled that lifetime of experience and study into his book.” ―HSToday
“Phares does an exceptional job . . . reveals the essence and implications of the term jihadism in ways the average American can easily understand.” ―Officer
“As good a primer on the mind, motives, and mission of the radical Islamist--the jihadist--as I have found.” ―Mitt Romney
