This is an excellent introduction for anyone to the actual source material concerning Jihad from various Islamic scholars over the centuries. Again, it reinforces the fact that most of the attempts to sanitize the word by Western academics and Muslim apologists has no real basis in the Quran, Hadith or over a millenium of Islamic history, with the exception of the Sufi textbooks. I do not agree with all of his predictions, as he makes no mention of the self-starters and the influence of the internet, nor do I think ALL apologists have 'good' intentions. For the most part, this is an an excellent addition to introductory readings on the subject.
