Jihad Joe Excerpt Now Available On Aslanmedia.comReza Aslan's Aslanmedia.com is graciously hosting an excerpt from my new book, Jihad Joe: Americans Who Go to War in the Name of Islam.
The excerpt is the tail-end of the book's second chapter on Anwar Awlaki, and the title of the excerpt is "Anwar Awlaki is NOT the next Osama bin Laden."
There's a lot more depth, color and background on Awlaki to be found in the book, which is available starting this weekend, but I thought this particular section was the right choice given the recent and wildly irresponsible media speculation about Awlaki possibly "taking over" for Osama bin Laden.
Enjoy the excerpt, and check out the book!

"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
