Table Of Contents For "Jihad Joe: Americans Who Go To War In The Name Of Islam"

In response to a request from a follower on Twitter, I'm posting the table of contents for my forthcoming book, "Jihad Joe: Americans Who Go To War In The Name Of Islam," the first comprehensive look at the phenomenon of American jihadists from the 1970s to the present.

The TOC and hopefully some preview information will be available on, hopefully soon. The book is scheduled to be released in April/May 2011. Pre-orders are available now and are very much appreciated. The more people who order in advance, the better I will be able to promote the book. And if you order now, you can lock in a 35% discount off the cover price, which will likely go away as the release date gets closer.

ISIS: The State of Terror
"Jessica Stern and J.M. Berger's new book, "ISIS," should be required reading for every politician and policymaker... Their smart, granular analysis is a bracing antidote to both facile dismissals and wild exaggerations... a nuanced and readable account of the ideological and organizational origins of the group." -- Washington Post

Jihad Joe: Americans Who Go to War in the Name of Islam:
"At a time when some politicians and pundits blur the line between Islam and terrorism, Berger, who knows this subject far better than the demagogues, sharply cautions against vilifying Muslim Americans. ... It is a timely warning from an expert who has not lost his perspective." -- New York Times
