The U.S mainstream media is a major tool in the hands of the power elite; it constructs images of reality that are subsequently widely believed in by the masses, images whose definitions ensure that... More > inequality will continue without revolt or redress. A mythology, garbed in master symbols that contours perceptions of available life-chances regardless of objective fact, it determines relationships between races, ethnicities and nationalities; it makes people chase dreams that most can never attain. So powerful are its effects (as are often revealed by polls after major events about which most people’s only source of information is this media or people exposed to the media), that realities of people’s own lives, the objective facts that confront them on a daily basis, become subordinate to its contrived images< Less

The ideology of violent extremists has been discussed frequently since the tragic events of September 11, 2001 (9/11). It is clear that an ideology of Islamist or Islamic political opposition and... More > radicalism has been key to understanding various events and movements that go back even further, to the Islamic Revolution in Iran, for example. Some policy analysts and public figures have challenged Muslims to change or reform aspects of their beliefs based on the aspects identified as “extremist.” However, there are many interpretations and misinterpretations of what those elements are, and how Muslims should go about reforming their faith. Just as controversial is the idea that there is a “war within Islam” and that the United States should be promoting one army in that war—ideological moderates—so they will defeat their foes.

Paperback: $14.97
Prints in 3-5 business days
The United States has long faced numerous problems when fighting insurgencies. Many of these concern the performance of local allies, who typically play a leading role in counterinsurgency. In this... More > monograph, Dr. Daniel Byman reviews the problems common to the security forces of local allies that have fought or may soon fight insurgencies linked to al-Qa’ida. He argues that these problems stem from deep structural weaknesses, such as the regime’s perceived illegitimacy, poor civil-military relations, an undeveloped economy, and discriminatory societies. Together, they greatly inhibit the allied armed forces’ effectiveness in fighting the insurgents. Various U.S. programs designed to work with allied security forces, at best, can reduce some of these issues. To be effective, any program to assist allied counterinsurgency forces should factor in the allies’ weaknesses. This monograph was written under the Strategic Studies Institute’s External Research Associates Program (ERAP).< Less
