Overview

One of the most far-reaching examinations of militant Islam written to date.
Long before September 11, 2001, Daniel Pipes publicly warned Americans that militant Islam had declared war on America—yet sadly, Americans failed to take heed. The publication of Militant Islam Reaches America finally brought Pipes the attention he deserves. Dividing his work into two parts, Pipes first defines militant Islam, stressing the large and crucial difference between Islam, the faith, and the ideology of militant Islam. He then discusses the relatively new subject of Islam in the United States, and how it has developed rapidly in the last decade. In Militant Islam Reaches America, the product of thirty years of extensive research, Pipes provides one of the most incisive examinations of the growing radical Islamic movement ever written.
The paperback edition includes a new essay, "Jihad and the Professors."
