Overview

As the global Jihadist movement grows more complex, the escalating threat to international security demands a clear vision for winning the battle against fundamentalist Islamic violence. Walid Phares's previous books, Future Jihad and The War of Ideas, traced the forces that led to September 11 and the rise of radical Islam and examined the conflicting ideologies that underlie the War on Terror. Now, in The Confrontation, Phares provides global solutions for defeating the forces of jihad and identifies the upcoming battles in the vast world of the Jihadist movement, from the ravaged villages of the Sudan to London's Muslim neighborhoods to the battlefields of Iraq and Afghanistan. Pointing towards a future that is safe for freedom and democratic societies, this book shows how the world's diverse institutions can come together to defeat the forces of jihad worldwide.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“Walid Phares has been a tremendous help to all of us--legislators and all Americans--in understanding the global confrontation with Jihadism. He is rendering a valuable service to the free world with his work.” —Rep. Sue Myrick, Chairwoman, Congressional Anti-Terrorism Caucus, US House of Representatives

“Walid Phares has written a trilogy of books that collectively provide a set of intellectual armor for civilized societies engaged in the War against Islamic Terrorism. He has, in short, fortified liberal democratic resolve.” —Joseph Morrison Skelly, Ph.D, Association for the Study of the Middle East and Africa

“In order to engage in a strategic 'redefinition of the war,' Phares thoughtfully argues that there must be a 'Western rethinking' of the conflict ... he concludes that the United States, other democracies, and their potential allies across the world and within the Muslim world can win the confrontation.” —NewsMax

“The Confrontation, along with other books in the series, is a useful riposte to the "apologist" doctrine. . .Phares presents an ambitious plan, but it only matches the aspirations of the adversaries the civilized world faces.” —Washington Times

“Phares . . . is a voice of calm and reason. . . . Provocative reading.” —Kirkus Reviews on The War of Ideas

“Phares . . . is a voice of calm and reason. . . . Provocative reading.” —Kirkus Reviews

“This book is a 'must read' for those who want to understand the jihad radical Islamists are waging against democracies. Walid Phares has a gift for being able to identify the root causes of the war and what the West and the free world must do to prevail.” —Oliver North, host of Fox News' War Stories on The War of Ideas
