Format: Paperback
This is an outstanding effort and one of the first USA produced books that takes a serious and insightful look at Al Qaeda's strategy and operational fiews. A must read for finding out whether it is possible to prevail in the face of the Al Qaeda threat.

The authors of this book have predicated its publication on the simple premise that you should "know your enemy." In order to prevail in the face of the threats posed by Al Qaeda and its Associated Movements (AQAM), the authors believe that you must have a thorough understanding of the beliefs and strategies of your opponent. The book is a particularly refreshing perspective on terrorism responses at a time when we are often given vacuous and empty ideas such as "The terrorists hate us because they hate our freedom."

This book explores both the religious and the often overlooked secular views of Al Qaeda and its adherents. By examining salafi jihadist theory, AQAM's perception of its enemies and the strategic level communications being used, the authors are capable of providing real policy implications and not just recycled policies or empty rhetoric.

One of the most interesting aspects of the book is how it examines AQAM's own view of itself. This exposes many of the myths about Al Qaeda. As was often the case in the Cold War, we were led to believe that the Soviet Army was a fearful enemy and it had soldiers who were "ten feet tall." As it turns out, this was not the case and the USSR collapsed in on itself. This book shows that not only are Al Qaeda's followers not ten feet tall, but they have significant short comings, many of which they are aware of themselves.
