The Mighty and the Almighty Reviews
"Starred review. While fully acknowledging the threat al-Qaeda poses, Albright rejects the notion that a "clash of civilizations" is in progress and wisely calls for care and nuance in how America approaches international confrontations that are tinged with religion." - PW.
