Armed & Aggressive

The Suicide of Reason: Radical Islam’s Threat to the West
by Lee Harris
Basic Books, 2007
(290 pages, $26.00, hardcover)

reviewed by John C. “Chuck” Chalberg

Writing in response to Samuel (The Clash of Civilizations) Huntington and Francis ( The End of History and the Last Man) Fukuyama, Lee Harris invites his readers to consider the very real possibility that something very much more than a border dispute between the West and Islam is on the horizon and something a good deal less than a worldwide meeting of like-minded liberal, democratic capitalists is in the cards.
