Politics & Social Sciences Kindle eBooks @ Amazon.com. ] ᕔ Book Author Gregory D Johnsen ᠅ While U.S foreign policy focuses on Iraq and Afghanistan, Yemen presents a mounting threat as al Qaeda grows in strength and influence in the remote regions of the Arab world Johnsen, an expert on Yemen, draws on al Qaeda battle notes to deliver a detailed analysis of how a nation that had been a success story in the U.S effort to defeat al Qaeda and stabilize the region has been the site for resurgence instead He examines the historical factors that have contributed to the buildup of al Qaeda in Yemen as young men were recruited by the government, Yemeni tribes, and mosques in a concerted effort to turn the war in Afghanistan into a broader jihad Johnsen explores the motivations of major figures, including tribal loyalties, old rivalries, new oil revenue, and geopolitics Most compelling are the details of recruitment and training of young men vulnerable to appeals to righteousness and adventure as they are drawn into the training campuses and safe houses, where terrorists plot their attacks on the U.S and its allies Gripping and insightful Vanessa BushGregory Johnsen has written a break through book on one of the most under reported and misunderstood stories of the post 9 11 era Penned in gripping prose and with incredible attention to detail, The Last Refuge unfolds with the

of the development of Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula It is also a great read Bruce Riedel, Daily BeastThe Last Refuge is an authoritative and deftly written account of al Qaedas Yemeni incarnation The book is dense with terrorist genealogies, but it also offers a lively portrait of the American governments stumbling efforts to understand and influence a profoundly alien culture His account, starting in the 1980s, implicitly places Yemen near the center of the global jihadi movement it may not be where al Qaeda started, but it has always furnished many of the movements foot soldiers, and it has now succeeded Afghanistan as the US governments most urgent concern about counterterrorism Robert R Worth, The New York Review of BooksGripping and insightful BooklistPart modern history, part
