Al-Qaeda : casting a shadow of terror by Jason Burke( Book )

8 editions published between 2003 and 2007 in English and German and held by 1,414 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Argues that "Al-Qaeda" is a construct that bundles together a variety of Islamic militant movements that share goals, training, and contacts but do not form a tightly organized body
The new threat : the past, present, and future of Islamic militancy by Jason Burke( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 371 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Jason Burke is one of the world's leading experts on militant Islam. He embedded with the Kurdish peshmerga (currently at war with ISIS) while still in college. He was hanging out with the Taliban in the late 1990s. He witnessed the bombing of Tora Bora in Afghanistan in 2001 firsthand. With the current emergence of ISIS in Iraq and Syria and the resurgence of the Taliban in Afghanistan and Pakistan, no one is as well placed as Burke-whose previous books have been chosen as books of the year by The Economist, the Daily Telegraph, and The Independent-to explain this dramatic post-Al Qaeda phase of Islamic militancy. We are now, he argues, entering a new phase of radical violence that is very different from what has gone before, one that is going to redefine the West's relationship with terrorism and the Middle East. ISIS is not "medieval," as many U.S. national security pundits claim, but, Burke explains, a group whose spectacular acts of terror are a contemporary expression of our highly digitized societies, designed to generate global publicity. In his account, radical Islamic terrorism is not an aberration or "cancer," as some politicians assert; it is an organic part of the modern world. This book will challenge the preconceptions of many American readers and will be hotly debated in national security circles. "--
