"Kepel examines the impact of global terrorism and the ensuing military operations to stem its tide. He questions the United States' ability to address the Middle East challenge with Cold War rhetoric, while revealing the fault lines in terrorist ideology and tactics. Finally, he proposes a way out of the Middle East quagmire that triangulates the interests of Islamists, the West, and the Arab and Muslim ruling elites. That path leads through Muslim immigrant communities in the West--the ultimate battlefield where the struggle for the democratization of Islamic societies will be won or lost"--Jacket

Al Qaeda in its own words by Gilles Kepel( Book )

35 editions published between 2005 and 2009 in 4 languages and held by 1,125 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Despite the frequent appearances of Osama Bin Laden and Ayman al-Zawahiri on television screens worldwide, Al Qaeda remains an elusive entity. As the world has grown increasingly familiar with the spectacle of Islamist terrorism, Al Qaeda's essential worldview has remained be-wilderingly opaque. To reveal its inner workings, Gilles Kepel and his collaborators, all scholars of Arabic and Islam, have collected and brilliantly annotated key texts of the major figures from whom the movement has drawn its beliefs and direction. The resulting volume offers an unprecedented glimpse into the assumptions of the Salafist jihadists who have reshaped political life at the beginning of the third millennium."--Jacket
Beyond terror and martyrdom : the future of the Middle East by Gilles Kepel( Book )

13 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 846 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since 2001, two dominant worldviews have clashed in the global arena: a neoconservative nightmare of an insidious Islamic terrorist threat to civilized life, and a jihadist myth of martyrdom through the slaughter of infidels. Across the airwaves and on the ground, an ill-defined and uncontrollable war has raged between these two opposing scenarios. Yet, as noted Middle East scholar and commentator Gilles Kepel demonstrates, President Bush's War on Terror masks a complex political agenda in the Middle East-enforcing democracy, accessing Iraqi oil, securing Israel, and seeking regime change in Iran. Osama bin Laden's call for martyrs papers over a fractured, fragmented Islamic world that is waging war against itself. This book sounds the alarm to the West and to Islam that both of these exhausted narratives are bankrupt--neither productive of democratic change in the Middle East nor of unity in Islam. Kepel urges us to escape the ideological quagmire and explore the terms of a new and constructive dialogue between Islam and the West, one for which Europe, with its expanding and restless Muslim populations, may be the proving ground.--From publisher description

Bad moon rising : a chronicle of the Middle East today by Gilles Kepel( Book )

25 editions published between 2001 and 2011 in 6 languages and held by 310 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"While sensing the omens of a new war, Kepel's account reveals that the realities are more complex than commonly understood. Bin Laden is popular and religious fervour is on the rise, but many people have also found the path to moderation without blunting their critical instincts." "Throughout, Kepel asks the critical questions: Why is there so much resentment towards, but fascination for, the West?"--Jacket
