“Throughout this book, I have tried to apply impartial analyses and interpretations of the facts from which I have subsequently come with what I believe are balanced ad reasonable conclusions. All I can do is hope that I have succeeded in my attempts.” says Mr. Tabarani. Experts agree that the book is a fair and balanced work – making it a rare piece of impartial analysis in what is often a highly partisan body of literature.
“Jihad's New Heartlands” is a ground breaking book offering an insightful and thorough analysis of the most important territories where Islamic fundamentalism has taken a foothold. The author, Gabriel G Tabarani, thanks to his combination of thorough research, wide-ranging travel and extensive experience in the field provides a thorough historical, political and social analysis of the key variables, historical events and most importantly their potential consequences.
This extensive and well-documented study, across many of the world's foremost and pertinent Islamic fundamentalist breeding grounds such as Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia, The Levant (Lebanon, Palestine, Syria and Jordan), and The Maghreb (Morocco, Algeria and Tunisia), offers the reader an in depth look at the context of Islamic Fundamentalism's rise in prominence, profile and destabilising potential. This analysis is extended to Muslim populations living in Europe, Russia and America helping to explain the causes for the West’s failure to contain Islamic extremism both at home and abroad.
