I liked the book a great deal. It was scholarly without being boring. I finished it in an afternoon, nut will be going back to mine it for some lecture material. I especially appreciated the material on the use of American Muslims and others to combat anti-Americanism in the Middle East. This was interesting in that American policy makers were aware of the need to tailor some of the message in religious terms different religions could understand.
