"Global Jihad" - new title by Patrick Sookhdeo (Isaac Publishing)
For reviews click here.
Dr Sookhdeo`s latest work analyses the rise of Islamic violence worldwide in the modern world. Quoting from an extensive range of Muslim and other sources, he examines the present situation in the context of Islamic teaching on violence and war, past and present, and suggests a range of possible responses.
(670 pages, hard back, Isaac Publishing)
"This book is long overdue. Patrick Sookhdeo has put together a stunning in-depth analysis of perhaps the greatest threat facing the Western World today. I strongly commend it to anyone attempting to understand the issues surrounding global jihad, particularly policy makers and those charged with executing the responses required. Our current campaign plans lack both clarity and understanding - this book provides both, and all those engaged in the formulation of future plans should read what he has to say very carefully indeed - their efforts will be well rewarded."
Major General (retired) Tim Cross CBE, Army Adviser to the House of Commons Defence Committee
"After every atrocity carried out by Muslim jihadists against the West, we ask the dismal question `Why do they hate us so much?`. Patrick Sookhdeo`s book explains exactly why, and what we can do about it." General (retired) Sir Hugh Beach GBE, KCB, MC
"Patrick Sookhdeo has written another book of great scholarship and clarity, which examines the roots and nature of Islamic jihad and the long war that lies ahead. A recent NATO think-tank clearly identifies Islamic terrorism as a `threat of a global nature that places the very existence of NATO`s members at risk … it is imperative to defend our freedoms against Islamic extremism … and we must take responsibility for defeating Islamic jihadism.` Patrick Sookhdeo is a man uniquely qualified to explain to the reader what lies behind the resurgence of militant Islamic fundamentalism and how the West should respond. This important book is most strongly commended to everyone who wants to understand the nature of the Islamic threat we face, and it is especially recommended for study in universities, to government and to those who wish to analyse asymmetric threats."
Colonel (retired) Ivar Hellberg OBE, MPhil, Director of the Resilience Centre, Cranfield University at the UK Defence Academy
"Tactics without strategy, warned Sun Tzŭ, is the noise before defeat. Patrick Sookhdeo`s book tells us much about our opponents` strategy. We would do well to understand it, to recognise its attraction and its force, and to meet it with a strategy of our own. We will have no excuse for saying that we were not warned."
Professor Richard Holmes, Professor of Military and Security Studies at Cranfield University
