An important book on the comparatives of Islam and the Western ideology. The 4 parts of the book focuses on the Bosnian Civil War, war in Algeria, war in Chechnya, and the violence in the Palestinian territories. Juan Goytisolo argues how conflict in these parts of the world stem from the ideological overall picture of Islam and the West, particularly with political and cultural. An informative book on four geographical areas plagues by inter-ethnic and religious violence. Great for a class on modern international affairs or to open you up to the world around us.
