A collection of essays aimed at contextualising the post 911 American global ambitions. The aim on the whole hits the bull's eye. However like most collections of this type, there are misses too. It is inevitable that some of the writers aren't possessed of the same wit, eloquence, insight or indeed the flamboyance that others are. The better essays are by the big three Muslim scholars (Yusuf, Murad and Shakir), the left leaning usual suspects are also here as are `liberal moderate' Muslims (that perhaps traditional Muslims may have a bone or three of contention with). A major flaw is the repetition of facts and scenarios (at times almost word for word) across the various essays that become glaringly tedious as the book progresses; especially if the book is read from beginning to end as opposed to being dipped in. Overall this flaw rests with the editor rather than any of the individual writers; the editing should have been tighter. Worth buying if you can't find the essays by the big guns anywhere else.

This book is GREAT. The author/editor (Aftab Malik) has done a superb job by presenting information in a clear and unbiased way, putting forward the facts, citing sources and making a clear argument. Well written and and easy read this book is a great starting point for those interested in learning about intrenational relations and the reason behind why the world is in the state it is in. Read it with "A peace to end all peace" and thats all the history you need to start with.
