The Al Qaeda ReaderBook - 2007
"Despite our tendency to dismiss Islamic extremism as profoundly irrational, al Qaeda is not without a coherent body of beliefs. As in other totalitarian movements, its leaders have rationalized their brutality in a number of published treatises. Now, for the first time, The Al Qaeda Reader gathers together the essential texts and documents that trace the origin, history, and evolution of the ideas of al-Qaeda founders Ayman al-Zawahiri and Osama bin Laden."--BOOK JACKET.
