Summary "The U.S. intelligence community has identified Abu Musab al-Suri as the most important theorist of the global Islamic jihad and considers his manifesto to be the definitive strategic document produced by al Qaida or any jihadi organization in more than a decade. But to Americans his 1600-page manuscript largely consists of incomprehensible, impenetrable Islamic scholarship. With this publication, defense analyst Jim Lacey delivers a meaningful distillation of al-Suri's Call to global Islamic resistance, a work that has been called the Mein Kampf of the jihadi movement"--Page 4 of cover.
