Editorial Reviews

Review

"Given last month’s riots in France [Al Qaeda in Europe] could not have arrived in the bookstores in a more timely fashion. This is the first book to examine Islamic terrorism in Europe…This book is yet another wake up call to anyone who does not yet grasp how widespread the Islamic jihad is as it describes three of the most important terrorist networks in Europe and analyses events there."
Foreword by Steven Emerson
Director of the Investigative Project

"Although the book was completed prior to the July 2005 London bombings, it nevertheless succeeds in explaining the magnitude of the jihadi threat in Europe."
Book Reviews

"Mr. Vidino offers valuable insights on the workings and organization of Al Qaeda in Europe and the threat this terrorist group poses not only to European countries, but also to the United States."
Congressman Elton Gallegly
Chairman of the House Subcommittee on Europe & Emerging Threats

"Vidino peels back the layers of the al Qaeda networks in Europe and shows how lax immigration and asylum laws, coupled with the availability of false documents and financing, have allowed terrorists to operate in Europe with relative ease. Thoroughly researched."
Representative Ed Royce, Chairman
Subcommittee on International Terrorism & Nonproliferation
House International Relations Committee

Format: Hardcover
An impressive and well-documented book that grabs and holds your interest

from the very start.  Vidino gives an overview of who's who behind the

terrorist networks--great for the layman!--then addresses the specifics of

how each group finds recruits, finds financing and finds havens.  I find

him masterful at weaving everything together, including how political,

social and legal issues in Europe bear upon the existence of radical groups

there.  A fascinating analysis...but disturbing."

Amazingly well written. I bought it Friday morning and spent the weekend home reading and re-reading it, could not put it down. Rich with facts and information, yet it flows marvellously. I was fascinated by the transcripts of conversations among European al Qaeda operatives as intercepted by intelligence agencies. They give a unique insight into the minds of terrorists, something I have rarely seen elsewhere. A must-read for anybody interested in terrorism and current affairs!

Lorenzo Vidino's Al Qaeda In Europe: The New Battleground Of International Jihad provides an excellent companion piece, considering how Europe has become a key battleground on the War on Terror. This is the first book in English to examine Islamic roots and terrorism in Europe, comes from a Deputy Director of The Investigative Project, and examines exactly how terrorists raise money, communicate, and operate through hidden cells across the continent. Original documentation from a dozen nations accompanies transcripts of Al Qaeda conversations and chapters which examine particular plots.

A very scary book about the diaspora of Muslims to Europe and embedded in them were terrorists. That have joined together at their churches to plan the killing of Europeans and bombing their infrastructure. I thought they were trying to escape the strict religious rule of their faith. But no, they are empowered to go out and subdue the world into the Koranic teachings and on a jihad. They kill innocent people with home made bombs in crowed public meeting places. They are happy when they have created a new kill zone and have mutilated dozens of people. They are here in the U.S.A and are committed to the faith to repeat the conquest of the world and convert it to Islam. Be very, very afraid. It is happening here today. It is in the news even today.

This young author has come up with a well-researched, well-documented and very-well written book, that is the most authritative volume on the subject. Any one who is interested in the rise of terrorism around the world would be much better-informed after reading this book. It is as up-to-date as today's newspaper headlines.
