About the Book

We are experiencing a clash of civilisations, which knows no national borders. Fervour has no specific boundary. When it is religiously motivated it is idealism not nationalism. The emergence of ISIS is a reaction to imperialism. There is a political nexus between 911 and the GFC, for both are not mutually exclusive. To comprehend the terrorism of today you must first understand its motivation. Action be-gets reaction. In order to comprehend the violence of Islamic State you must firstly understand the arrogance of contemporary imperialism, for it began on September 11th 2001.

About the Author

Born and educated in the United Kingdom, an extended three month holiday in Spain in my early twenties instilled in me an overwhelming desire to experience as much travel as I possibly could. A twenty-five year career in the Casino industry offered me the opportunity to achieve that dream. As such I have led a very peripatetic life experiencing two and a half years in Iran, three years in Denmark, two years aboard cruise ships and a year in the Philippines which finally led me to the sunburnt beauty of the lucky country, Australia, where I have been domiciled for nearly thirty years. Travel has undoubtedly informed my writing. Wanderlust has given me an objective education into the disparity of global cultures and politics and an invaluable insight into the idiosyncrasies that makes humans tick.
