In 1991, a British univ. student, Jason Burke, spent his summer break with Kurdish guerrillas in northern Iraq. Now, Burke travels to Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, the Gaza Strip, and Thailand to meet with refugees, mujahideen, and gov’t. ministers in a search to understand Islam, and Islamic radicalism, in the context of the “War on Terrorism.” His destination is the ancient city of Kandahar, the Taliban’s administrative headquarters. Burke brings the reader close to the people in whose villages and cities the “War on Terrorism” and Islamists’ violent acts of anti-Western, anti-modern jihad are being fought. He reaches the optimistic conclusion that extremist violence alienates its populations, and so is doomed to fail and wither away. Maps.
