Intriguing but stylistically lacking,
This review is from: Al-Qaeda: The True Story of Radical Islam (Paperback)
This is an interesting exploration of some of the myths and realities surrounding Al Qaeda, and is a book which remains deeply relevant. Its main insight is that Al Qaeda is a diffuse grouping of like minded individuals lacking any real organisational shape or structure. Instead the main threat it poses constitutes the ideology it represents, which can be self-replicating.
However, although this message is interesting, I found the text to be very dense with names of organisations and individuals, which meant I sometimes got lost amid a plethora of detail. Additionally, once you have grasped the central theme Burke is intending to convey there is little more to his arguments.

Yeah it's certainly not interesting to point out that the entire reasons for trillion dollar wars and over a million lives lost is.... a lie.
