Book Description

18 April 2007 Phoenix Press
In his column which appeared in the Times on the morning of 9/11, Michael Gove prophetically argued that the West's policy of appeasement towards terror was destined to provoke yet greater atrocities. In Celsius 7/7, Gove explores the roots of Islamic rage, the historical factors which culminated in the current terrorist campaign and the Moslem world's troubled accommodation with modernity. He also analyses the intellectual roots and political appeal of Islamism, explains the factors behind Jihadi violence and places the current fundamentalist challenge in context. Combining a broad historical sweep with character sketches of key figures such as Michel Aflaq, Charles de Gaulle, Sayyhid Qutb, Donald Rumsfeld, Abu Musab al_Zarqawi, Henry Kissinger and Osama bin Laden, as well as a detailed survey of Western political failures, Gove's account is a shrewd and detached analysis that provides powerfully convincing recommendations for future action.

5.0 out of 5 stars Michael Gove for Prime Minster 14 Jan 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A great read. We sit at home and wonder if our politicians know whats happening around us. It seems at least one does. Michael Gove is like a best kept secrete. I would make everyone in parliament read this, and put it in every libary and school.
If you don't understand the threat this country faces from the radical element in Islam, this is the book for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars A well founded opinion... 28 April 2008
Gove is a clever man widely tipped to be very senior in Government one day.He is a lone voice of moral principle, and with a sharp well educated mind a formidable man to debate with.This book is very uncomfortable to read.Gove has researched it well and deals in hard edged facts just like Hitchens and Phillips.( Abolition of Britain and Londonistan)His take on the facts reaches simlar conclusions and will annoy a vast section of the world's population. Yet he cannot be accused of racism or religous intolernce as he makes very clear the distinction between ordinary Muslims and Islamists. The only criticism I can seriously offer is that his prose style is a bit long winded to the point of being archaic. But due to the level of research he has so obviously conducted it is reasuring to read fact fact after fact. His conclusions are therefore well founded.

I suppose I have a better idea what it would have been to live in Nazi Germany during the 1930's.
Some people never change.

5.0 out of 5 stars Drills down the issues and gets to the point 23 Sep 2007
By Eitenne the Reader - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Now a member of British Parliament, Michael Gove brings his political expertise and writing skills honed as a journalist to play in this 138 page "drilling down" of the Islamofascism vs the West, Israel & the moderate mainstream Islamic World into easily understood concepts, problems and responses.

Background, situation analysis, response planning ... all that remains s the call to action - which has to come from the readers.

A good read, insightful, positive and bellweather clear in describing the solutions to the terrorism threats we face today.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good intro to neo-con thought 27 May 2008
By Sirin - Published on
I recommend this book for anyone who is developing their thinking w/r/t Islamism and Middle East policy, and moral and cultural relativism generally. Gove is a hawkish, intelligent, lucid thinker and writer and his views are bound to prickle many, particularly those on the anti-American left.

I was especially interested by his views on Israel - a sort of modern day West Berlin, a strategic bulwark of democracy against the failed Islamic states surrounding it. Bet that doesn't slip down smoothly in some quarters.

I read this book soon after journalist Nick Cohen's 'What's Left'. From opposite sides of the traditional spectrum, the two thinkers have united on this issue pretty much whole. Truly we are living in new times, where old left/right certainties are melding and fuzzing up. Dangerous and interesting times.
