...delve deeper into the complex dynamics of the present global
situation, I recommend the following books:
1) The Two Faces Of Islam by Stephen Schwartz
An in depth historical study of both the more benign majority strains of
Islam and its recent more virulent minority Wahhabist mutation.
2) Terror And Liberalism by Paul Berman
An analysis of the reasons that classic liberalism has difficulties dealing
with terrorist organizations and regimes, and what can be done about it.
3) Of Paradise And Power by Robert Kagan
A study of the power dynamics underlying the differences of political
opinion between Western Europe and the US.
