...the federal government detained several hundred people suspected of terrorist involvement, and continued to search for hundreds more. Some were overseas, some were on the run, but most were already at home -- "in America. "

Who are these people? Where did they come from? And how could there be so many terrorists or suspected terrorists living among us without action being taken? In "American Jihad, " Steven Emerson, the world's leading authority on domestic Islamic terrorist networks, tells the full story of the rise of those who wish to destroy the United States from within.

From the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center, to foiled attacks on the New York City subway system, to a stunning range of murders across the country, there were numerous warning signs that the "American Jihad" had been gaining momentum. With an up-to-the-minute afterword that explains the stops and starts of the post-9/11 investigation, "American Jihad" reveals the full story that only Emerson knows -- and the reasons America failed to stop the most devastating attack in history on our own soil. This is a frightening and crucial book for anyone who needs to understand the threat within our borders.

Industry Reviews

Ethan Bronner The New York Times Book Review Emerson is an investigator who has performed a genuine service...His information should be taken seriously.
Jeff Jacoby The Boston Globe The indispensable guide to American Muslim extremists and their ties to international terrorism.
Richmond Times-Dispatch The book is thorough and audacious -- and sobering. American Jihad belongs on the required reading list.
Melissa Radler The Jerusalem Post It is hard to think of anyone who has done more extensive research in the area. The things that worry Emerson should worry America at large.
