"In the summer of 1991 Jason Burke set off to join Kurdish guerillas fighting in Iraq. It turned out to be the start of a remarkable journey that would take him from the sands of the Sahara to the highest peaks of the Himalayas, seeing at first hand life and death, war and peace, bigotry and tolerance, hate and friendship throughout the 'Islamic World'. On the Road to Kandahar is the honest, fascinating story of how he has travelled in search of answers to perhaps the most important issues of our time: how should we understand Islam, and Islamic radicalism?"--BOOK JACKET

Insurgent Iraq : Al Zarqawi and the new generation by Loretta Napoleoni ( Book )
3 editions published between 2005 and 2014 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
An unparalleled look into the Iraqi insurgency and the multitude of forces that continue to shape it, Insurgent Iraq: Al-Zarqawi and the New Generation presents a chilling account of the regrouping of terror networks, and the development of an Iraqi resistance since the invasion by coalition forces over two years ago. One of the world's leading specialists on terrorism, economist Loretta Napoleoni is uniquely qualified to make sense of the ways in which terror networks do and do not operate in Iraq, and what role they play in the Iraqi resistance. Is the insurgency in Iraq a counter-Crusade, a national liberation movement, or a civil war' With a complex understanding of all the intricacies inherent in such a question, Napoleoni provides a mindful discussion, offering a much-needed understanding of how the US occupation of Iraq has catalyzed the cultural, religious, and political divides within the country to create a wholly changed, more volatile landscape. Composed of independent Iraqi Jihadist groups, Islamo-Nationalist and Ba'ath party resistance, ethnic infighting between Sunni, Shi'ite and Kurd, and foreign suicide bombers, the resistance is a divided yet maintains one demand: the end of US occupation. Overall, Napoleoni offers a breakdown of the current political landscape in Iraq, and a renovated al-Qaeda. Insurgent Iraq is a necessary read for anyone concerned with the future of Iraq, or seeking greater insight into the U.S.'s critical role in the Middle East
