Western perceptions of the Middle East have all too often been simplified. Islamic culture can easily be stereotyped in the Western media and even into this century the orient has been romanticised and mythologised. In The Next Threat, five authors from widely differing backgrounds argue that these perceptions are maintained in the current policies of Western governments and institutions.

The collection focuses on the same argument: that we dehumanise whole societies in order that we can hold our own economies together. From 1945 until 1989, the financial and military interests of the Western world were united by the `threat' from the communist East. Now, in the post-Cold War period, the West appears to be offering a perceived rising spectre of Islam as justification for Western military budgets and to legitimise intervention. The Next Threat provides us with a unique interpretation of these Western perceptions of Islam in the modern era.
