The book is outstanding, but there will always be those who use any available crevice to jab at someone’s politics or character. Had Michael used a pen-name to prevent this I doubt there would be a sub-4 star review here.

Gove’s understanding of Islamism is effusive throughout, and he arranges it in a concise, structured and persuading way. His style is vivid and sobering and the vocabulary impressive; his talent as a columnist and his grip on complex ideas work together nicely.

A few of my favourite bits: Western self-hatred after the satisfaction of real political and economic woes last century (Frankfurt School, George Galloway); Examining the assumption that Palestinian authorities really want to form a state; That Islamists object to the concept of our society, softening foreign policy has and will embolden them; the strong historic reputation of the nation-state; personality and the ‘totalitarian temptation’.

Michael shrilly puts ‘Islamism’ and ‘Islam’ in two different and distant boxes at the outset, which is still pretty much necessary today, and absolutely essential for someone in the public domain, so one must look elsewhere to learn about the hazards of the Quran and Hadith in this regard. (It’s quaint to observe the author unwittingly vandalise this page one distinction, as any tight assessment of the topic inevitably will.)

Anyway I’m glad I read it before I knew and heard much about this man.

Format: Paperback
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.

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.
