Award-winning author of No god but God and How to Win a Cosmic War, Reza Aslan explores the ideology that fuels al-Qaeda, the Taliban, and Jihadist. With a look at the United States' approach to the War on Terror, he examines the polarizing rhetoric that has further entangled politics with religion. Aslan argues that religion is a stronger force today. He asserts that we must strip away the current ideological conflict of its religious connotations and address the actual grievances that fuel the Jihadist movement.
