        Reza Aslan

        Random House 2009

        ISBN 9781400066728

      1. Writer, scholar of religion, and US public intellectual, Aslan’s best-selling book considers how good vs. evil dualisms were brought to bear on the war on terror and are exploited by both US political rhetoric and jihadist ideology. Provides a concise history of various Middle East conflicts. Useful for FW because it suggests concretely how certain Cold War approaches found their way back into politics after 9/11. See in particular Part 1: The Geography of Identity.
