Y: The Sources of Islamic Revolutionary Conduct By Major Stephen P. Lambert, Institute for National Security Studies, Joint Military Intelligence College
Paperback: $21.95

The title of this book naturally brings to mind the renowned diplomatic telegram from 1946, composed by “X” to explain “The Sources of Soviet Conduct.” The anonymous George... More > Kennan grasped the essence of the Soviet challenge, and the subsequent Containment Strategy became the foundation for strategic thought and action by the U.S. and its allies.

In the present work, Stephen Lambert convincingly argues that an effective, strategic appreciation of our present, worldwide contest, especially as it reflects the historic conflict between religious ideologies, cannot be achieved without public discussion of the religious foundations of individual and collective belief and action, whatever the label we choose to apply to the struggle.< Less
