Praise for The New Threat:
The New Threat is a much-needed and timely addition to the growing literature on jihadist organizations.”
The Washington Book Review

“This book makes an important contribution to the ongoing effort of writers and journalists to bring news and insight into the global assault on our values, freedoms, and lives.”
The New York Journal of Books

"Forgive the cliché: This book is essential reading. No hyperbole required...By no means does Burke trivialize the threat or question its existence. But he argues that to treat that threat as existential is to commit a categorical error. So too is any tendency to view Islamic militancy as monolithic or static."
The American Conservative

“Burke covers a lot of important ground in a compact narrative…A rewarding, if sobering, read.”
Kirkus Reviews, STARRED review

“[The New Threat] is a scrupulously researched study based on calm and cogent analysis, compellingly told.”
The National

"Like all of Burke's books, this one is cogently argued and well written.”
—Peter Bergen, the author of Manhunt, the Ten-Year Search for Bin Laden from 9/11 to Abbottabad

Praise for Jason Burke:
"[Burke is] the most reliable and perceptive guide to the rise of militant Islam."
—William Dalrymple, author of Nine Lives

Praise for Al Qaeda:The True Story of Radical Islam:
"Essential reading."
—Noam Chomsky

"Burke is a superb journalist."
The Daily Telegraph

"An expert on Islamic terrorism."
—Robert Mackey, The New York Times

"An indispensable guide to the multidimensional reality of Al-Qaeda."
—John Gray

"…a book which vastly increases our understanding of the Al-Qaeda phenomenon. Burke writes with admirable lucidity and the benefit of his frontline reporting and deep research."
—Peter Bergen, author of Holy War, Inc.
