the book is a fluent account of the policy paradoxes on the part of the collaterally damaged parties; East n West, and is more often than most a case of playing devil's advocate against the easily offend-able nature of the Muslims.

Definitely addresses both sides of the story, daring even to highlight the well-researched reasons as to why there is animosity in the east towards the west. A fairly balanced read, although slightly drawn out, which is rare in this genre.
I'll say the book was certainly informative, however, it was long and felt slightly repetitive. Irfan Husain did a good job at making the case to Americans why folks in the middle east harbor some of their dislike of us.
