 Our Description


We hear it said: "September 11 changed America forever." Less often do we hear a coherent explanation of what, exactly, changed. What changed, in fact, was that for the first time in American history we have been forced to confront Islamic militancy as it has assaulted the rest of the world for almost 14 centuries. In THE SWORD OF THE PROPHET, the reader receives the unvarnished truth about the rise of Islam and the patterns set by its founder, Muhammad; the historical meaning of jihad against the (non-Muslim) "infidel" that we see today in the al-Qaeda terror network; the broad sweep of the global military, political, moral, and spiritual


struggle that faces us; and what we must do if we wish to survive.

The sober, factual, and contextual presentation found in this book is essential. Every person owes it to himself or herself to know the real score of the post-9/11 world - and this invaluable volume is the place to start.

SERGE TRIFKOVIC is a graduate of the University of Sussex in England. He received his PhD at the University of Southampton and pursued his postdoctoral research on a State Department grant at the Hoover Institute at Stanford. He started his working life as a broadcaster and producer with the BBC World Service in London and with the Voice of America in Washington. He also covered southeast Europe for US. News & World Reportand The Washington Times.

In addition to authoring several books Serge Trifkovic has written scores of commentaries for-among others-the Philadelphia Inquirer, The Times of London, and the Cleveland Plain Dealer. He has appeared many times on the BBC World Service, CNN International, MSNBC, and other leading media outlets on both sides of the Atlantic as a commentator on world affairs. He is also a regular contributor and, since 1998, foreign affairs editor of Chronicles: A Magazine of American Culture.

"The arbiters of official Islam will not tell us what Islam is, only what they want it to be. For the truth, we must turn Dr. Serge Trifkovic, a European historian of broad learning, sound philosophy and keen political insight."
-BRIAN MITCHELL, Washington Bureau chief Investor's Business Daily

"This book pulls no punches in identifying the rise of Islamic fundamentalism as the greatest danger to Western values since the end of the Cold War."
-AMBASSADOR JAMES BISSETT, Former head of Canadian Immigration & Foreign Service, Canadian Ambassador to Yugoslavia, Bulgaria and Albania

"There is a culpable blindness of such an intensity that it can survive exposure even to the survey of aggressive Islamism given in this book. However as [Dr. Trifkovic] demonstrates, where Islam and other religions have come together the track record of peaceful co-existence is outweighed by the record of human catastrophe."
-MICHAEL M. STENTON, Lecturer for the University of Cambridge Institute of Continuing Education Author, Radio London and Resistance in Occupied Europe (Oxford University Press)
