NELSON INSTITUTE DIRECTOR REVIEWS BOOK ON JIHAD

December 31, 2005

HARRISONBURG—Dr. J. Peter Pham, Director of the Nelson Institute for International and Public Affairs, reviewed a recent volume on jihad in the current ( December 31, 2005) issue of National Review.

Pham hailed the 759-page anthology edited by Dr. Andrew G. Bostom, The Legacy of Jihad: Islamic Holy War and the Fate of Non-Muslims (Prometheus, 2005), as “an impressive compendium that meticulously documents the terror that is jihad.”

Dr. Bostom is scheduled to visit James Madison University on February 22, 2006, as a featured speaker in the Nelson Institute’s Guardian Lecture Series. More details on that event will be forthcoming.
