This accessible and deeply informed book examines the threat that Muslim extremists pose to America and provides a balanced and nuanced discussion of Iraq as a test case of America's war on terror. Explaining the basics of Islam and guiding the reader through the intricacies of each significant extremist group, the authors answer key questions: Who are the Muslim extremists and how do they fit within the broader context of the Islamic religion? What is their war plan and how do they operate? Who are their allies and what are their weaknesses? What is the experience of Israel, the Islamic world, and the United States in fighting Muslim extremists? How can they be defeated?

MEDIA REVIEWS
[A] sensible and productive set of proposals for understanding Muslim extremism. . . . [The authors] analyze jihadi strategies with a nuanced common sense all too hard to come by in the sometimes sensationalist literature on the topic. * The New York Times *
A compelling and extremely well-written analysis of topics that generally suffer serious distortion by the unthinking generalizations of policymakers and the media. The complexity of the Islamic world and the Middle East are made wholly understandable through this excellent and lucid work. -- Prof. J. A. (Tony) Allan, Department of Geography, King's College London
Among the thousands of publications that address the subject of terror, this book is exceptional. Carefully researched, well-written, and impressively objective, this study convincingly concludes that force alone will not destroy the tentacles of terror that continue to spread throughout the world. -- James A. Bill, College of William & Mary
A breakthrough in the scholarship on Islamic radicalism. This most readable and insightful book tackles previously unexplored facets of the radical Islamic agenda. The Palmers successfully diagnose the strengths and weaknesses of anti-American Islamic extremists, and offer a foolproof prescription for excising their threat. -- Hilal Khashan, American University of Beirut
