5.0 out of 5 stars A must read!, 5 Dec 2008
The War on Terror is a concern for us all, and understanding it is imperitive. Of course our governments make mistakes and do some very illiberal things, but there are plenty of writers, good and awful who document that. What this book analyses is the ideology of totalitarian islam and pan-arabism, the dangerous conclusion of moral relativsim, and also why we cannot reason with these people. It is monumental work that gets some real intellectual spunk into this highly misinformed debate, where the winner seems to have the most appealing linguistics, this book wins on all counts. Read it, it might change you.

I am a massive zombie cinema fan, and if im honest most zombie films are terrible, there are some great ones, but out of an infinate cannon i can only say 10-12 zombie films are actually good. This is actually better than most of the others, sure its flawed but hell i wasnt expecting much and i liked it, i have been let down by the utter rubbish that has 'zombie' in the title, and compared to that lot, this is worth a watch.
Have an open mind.
