When "Imperial Hubris" first came out in 2004, the greatest danger for Americans confronting the Islamist threat was to believe - at the urging of U.S. leaders - that Muslims attack us for what we are and what we think rather than for what we do. The now-classic showed that a growing segment of the Islamic world strenuously disapproves of specific U.S. policies and their attendant military, political, and economic implications and demonstrated that they will go to any length, not to destroy our secular, democratic way of life, but to deter what they view as specific attacks on their lands, their communities, and their religion. "Imperial Hubris" remains a must read for an in-depth look at Al Qaeda and the War on Terror.
