Written in an accessible, journalistic style, Jihad in Paradise focuses on Southeast Asia's struggle to deal with Islamic extremists and terrorism at the hands of Jemah Islamiyah, al Qaeda's Southeast Asian arm. Although the book gives particular attention to Singapore, the story extends into Malaysia, Indonesia, and the Philippines. The author draws on personal interviews with experts in the field as well as key political and religious figures. Millard examines the Bali bombing, Malaysia's conservative Islamic party PAS; the Malaysian province of Kelantan which is a Muslim political hotbed, Abu Saayaf of the Philippines, and Fateha.com and the use of the Internet.

Industry Reviews

"Traditionally, the most insightful and passionate works about the Orient have been written by outsiders. After having encountered Asia for a decade, Millard chronicles Singapore from his heart and soul. His personal and intimate knowledge of the momentous events and actors enables him to cast them artfully. Jihad in Paradise is a must read for all those who want to know Singapore, Asia-Pacific's vanguard." - Rohan Gunaratna, author, Inside Al Qaeda, Global Network of Terror"
