Al Qaeda in Its Own Words Despite the frequent appearances of Osama Bin Laden and Ayman al-Zawahiri on television screens, Al Qaeda remains an elusive entity. To reveal its inner workings, the author and his collaborators have collected and annotated key texts of the major figures from whom the movement has drawn its beliefs and direction.

Very Informative 12 juin 2008
Par DennisMcG - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Very interesting book it is a series of translations of various type of communications from the top Al Qaeda leaders along with personal biographies on each of them. I found reading these communications helpful in giving me an idea of the rationalization of these murderous fanatics

Excellent Resource 26 décembre 2009
Par C. A. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
An excellent resource of translated writings and statements by top Sunni jihadi leaders and ideologues with commentary and annotation by top scholars of the Middle East and modern Muslim political movements. A valuable resource for students and academics, as well as the educated general reader.

Valuable source of insight into al Qaeda's key players 9 novembre 2013
Par Dr. Michael Toney - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Kepel and his colleagues provide a valuable source of insight into al Qaeda. The chapter on al-Zawahiri presented a much needed description and structure to his past influences and transformation to a Jihadist. I strongly recommend this book to those interested in the inner workings of terrorist organizations, particularly as a primary reference when researching the subject. For me this book valuable as an authoritative source for my book on[...] and my continued research of terrorist organizational and leadership behaviors.

Confusion Abounds 24 novembre 2009
Par Jazz It Up Baby - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
As Raymond Ibrahim stated in the Fall 2009 edition of the Middle East Quarterly, Al Qaeda in Its Own Words provides the translated writings of four jihadis--Abdullah Azzam, Osama bin Laden, Ayman Zawahiri, and Abu Musab Zarqawi. Edited by five people with Kepel, a French sociologist of Islam, as lead editor, it contains a wealth of data that, unfortunately, is presented in a rather confused manner.

The actual words of Al-Qaeda are rarely analyzed or placed in context. Obvious contradictions--such as Al-Qaeda's constant protestations to Americans that its war on them is a response to and derives from U.S. foreign policy while telling Muslims that the jihad must persevere until the globe is governed according to Islamic law--are ignored.

Where objective analysis is wanting, apologetics and hackneyed psychoanalyses predominate: Thus, the "neocons" are akin to Al-Qaeda since "the dual undertakings of 9/11 and the American attack on Iraq ... mirrored each other"; bin Laden--that "nervous, flaccid, eternal adolescent"--opted for a life of jihad due to his "devouring" need for "recognition"; whereas Islamists such as Sayyid Qutb and Ayman al-Zawahiri chose jihad due to the "trauma" and "humiliation" they underwent in Egyptian prisons.

The editors also fail to explain the logic of their selections. Aside from the natural inclusion of bin Laden and Zawahiri--the two men at the heart of Al-Qaeda before and after 9/11--how, exactly, do the two dead fellows (Azzam, Zarqawi) fit in?

Though his writings are an important contribution to the vast corpus of jihadi literature, Azzam, dead since 1989, "can be held responsible only indirectly for the transformation of some Afghan Arab factions into terrorist organizations [i.e., Al-Qaeda]." As for Zarqawi--who had his own agenda and whose claim to fame lay in sheer barbarism and the practice of decapitation--one is at a loss to understand what value his anti-Shi'i diatribes have for understanding Al-Qaeda as an organization and not merely an amorphous body of Salafi jihadism.

To justify the decapitator's inclusion, the editors magnify his legacy, telling us that Zarqawi "ignited and fuelled a civil war with religious overtones between Shi'ites and Sunnis." In fact, the 1,400-year-old Sunni/Shi'i conflict required the elimination of an iron-fisted Saddam Hussein rather than the appearance of a Zarqawi to flare up again.

Much of this confusion could have been excused if the material contained in the book offered readers, as the jacket-cover promises, an "unprecedented glimpse" into the worldview of Al-Qaeda. The fact is that nearly every document contained in Al Qaeda was published earlier in other volumes or on the Internet.

In order to make an original contribution, the editors could have tried offering new insights or analyses on their unoriginal material. Instead, they seem to have taken the easy road by putting together a hodgepodge of previously published material, while offering only banal "analyses" and no synthesis.
