Sean Hannity is the hottest new phenomenon in TV and talk
radio today. His gutsy, take-no-prisoners interviews and
commentary has won him a huge and devoted following that
includes anyone who values straight talk over pandering
Devoting special attention to 9/11, the war on terror,
and the continuing threat we face at home and abroad,
Sean Hannity makes clear that the greatest challenge we
have to overcome may not be an attack from overseas, but
the slow compromising of our national character.
Bestselling author William J. Bennett says he was inspired
by displays of patriotism after the September 11 terrorist
attacks, but he was also struck by how "some were
quick to find us to blame." Bennett cites dozens
of examples of professors who decry U.S. foreign policy
and pundits who object to so much flag flying. "Many
of us have forgotten what we once knew about our freedoms
and our decencies, and we have forgotten why, time and
time again, we have had to rally ourselves to the point
of ultimate sacrifice to defend them."
Invasion exposes how America continues to welcome terrorists,
criminal aliens, foreign murderers, torturers, and the
rest of the world's "undesirables." It reveals
how our immigration authorities have granted citizenship
or legal permanent residence to America-haters and brutal
thugs. And it explains how misguided policies and overworked
officials have encouraged criminals to enter our country,
abuse our systems, and attack our citizens. Based on exhaustive
research and interviews with dozens of current and former
immigration officials, Invasion shines light on how the
INS, Congress, State Department, Big Business, and ethnic
special interests continue to value criminal alien rights
over American lives.
“The al–Qaida network is not America’s
most dangerous enemy,” Michael Savage contends.
“To fight only the al–Qaida enemy is to
miss the terrorist network operating within our own
borders. Who are these traitors? Every rotten, radical
left-winger in this country, that’s who.”
And that’s Savage just warming up in this hard–hitting,
pull–no–punches book about American politics
and culture. Savage’s fiercely independent thinking
made him a star of talk radio. His syndicated daily
program is heard on more than 300 stations, including
WABC in New York, KLIF in Dallas and KSFO in San Francisco.
From the ancient conflicts to the current geographical
and religious disputes between the Arabs and the
Israelis, Lewis examines the ability of this region
to unite and solve its problems and asks if, in
the future, these unresolved conflicts will ultimately
lead to the ethnic and cultural factionalism that
tore apart the former Yugoslavia.
Neglected areas of the Islamic world are feeding
grounds for international terrorism. And as Rashid,
author of the best-selling Taliban, shows in this
important work, Islamic fundamentalism is gaining
ground in Central Asia as well as it did in neighboring

region has personally met and interviewed many of

An intense, detailed examination of the militant
Islamist movement over the last quarter-century.
Kepel divides his book into two parts--"Expansion"
and "Decline"--and posits that the September
11, 2001, attacks, rather than demonstrating "strength
and irrepressible might," highlighted the "isolation"
and "fragmentation" of a "faltering"
and probably doomed extremist ideology.
CNN's terrorism expert, Bergen has long tracked
the Islamic world. He argues, among other things,
that it's unlikely Iraq was involved in the September
11 attacks, and that it's a myth that the CIA directly
funded and trained bin Laden during the war in Afghanistan
in the 1980s. The book opens with the account of
his 1997 interview with bin Laden.
The various conceptions of jihad, ranging from internal
movements for community reform to the modern explosive

to the real-world events we have come to know all

Laden without introducing details that would confuse
For a generation, Muslim extremists have targeted
Americans in an escalation of terror that culminated
in the September 11 attacks. Our shared confusion
-- Who are the attackers? Why are we targets? --
is cleared away in a book as dramatic as it is authoritative.
A clear foundation of the factors behind the use
of violence by groups, states, and/or individuals

field of political violence studies must have this
book in their library.
The book cuts to the essence of how identity has
traditionally been experienced by people in the
Middle East, how Western political concepts have
altered Middle-Eastern notions of identity, and
how these imported Western ideas have inflamed political
conflicts in that region.
A leading expert on Islam
gives essential background on Middle Eastern conflicts
with the West and shows how Islam — from
its first expansion to its interpretation by Saddam
Hussein and other extremists — has always
been inextricably linked to the Western world.
Bernard Lewis, the West's greatest historian and interpreter
of the Near East offers this concise and timely survey
of how Islamic civilization fell from worldwide leadership
in almost every frontier of human knowledge five or six
centuries ago to a "poor, weak, and ignorant"
backwater that is today dominated by "shabby tyrannies
... modern only in their apparatus of repression and terror."
He offers no easy answers, but does provide an engaging
chronicle of the Arab encounter with Europe in all its
military, economic, and cultural dimensions. The most
dramatic reversal, he says, may have occurred in the sciences:
"Those who had been disciples now became teachers;
those who had been masters became pupils, often reluctant
and resentful pupils." Today's Arab governments have
blamed their plight on any number of external culprits,
from Western imperialism to the Jews.
The West should stop intervening in civilizational conflicts
it doesn't understand -- a claim that internationalists
cannot easily ignore. The question is whether there remain
certain human interests that all civilizations had better
endorse for our common survival.
The culture clash between the Islamic nations of the Middle
East and the more secularized West.. Writing without fear
or favor, Lewis makes an ideal guide through the political,
religious, and cultural thickets of Islam.
This ought to bring chills to your spine. The British
journalist takes us on a highly readable tour of modern
terrorism. The book describes the initial bombing of the
World Trade Center masterminded by Ramzi Yousef who had
originally expected at least one of the towers to fall
into the other and kill 250,000 people...
An amazing eye opener for those unfamiliar with non-western
perceptions. The perception of writers, scientists, diplomats
and traders from the Ottoman empire. The arrogant and
overly confident Turks dismissed "barbaric"
Europe, unwilling to learn from it. Within a few centuries
their culture became stagnant, increasingly unable to
come to grips with either the rising West or its science
A persuasive and detailed account of the rise of anti-Semitism
in the Arab world. Lewis credits its emergence to European
influences, charts the collaboration between Arab nationalism
and Nazism and the disturbing proliferation of anti-Semitic
tracts following 1948. This is a well-written, powerful
book which must be read in order to understand why the
Middle East conflict has gone on so long.
The prominent Russian journalist describes the soldiers'
terror, helplessness, and despair at waging war in a foreign
land against an unseen enemy for unclear purposes. It
is a vital and fascinating portrait of the Soviet empire
at the twilight of its power. "I have read no other
account of the war in Afghanistan equal to this.... This
is literature, not journalism." ~ Graham Greene.
Describes the motives and determination of radical Muslims
like Osama bin Laden and their quest to destroy America
