This accessible and deeply informed book examines the threat that Islamic extremists pose to America and provides a balanced discussion of the link between Iraq and the war on terror. Explaining the basics of Islam and guiding the reader through the intricacies of each significant fundamentalist group, the Palmers 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 extremists? How can they be defeated? Now in a thoroughly revised and updated edition, the book includes new chapters on Hamas, the Iraqi clones of Hizbullah-including Sadr-and the Islamic government in Turkey.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The authors' nuanced analysis is a welcome addition to a growing literature on political Islam. Recommended. * CHOICE *
This brilliant book is absolutely the best contribution ever to the study of Islamic radicalism. Never before has any work on this heated topic dealt with it as comprehensively, dispassionately, and convincingly as the Palmers do in this breathtaking study. This smoothly written work is a must read for everyone, including decision makers in countries gripped with the dilemma of Islamic radicalism. -- Hilal Khashan, American University of Beirut
This powerful author team examines the heart and soul of Islam, a religion and civilization that is increasingly global in impact. As leading guides, the Palmers provide a clear path to understanding Islam. Using their new book as a field guide, readers will chart a safe course through a world beset by violence, ignorance, and arrogance. -- James A. Bill, College of William & Mary
