In New World Empire, William H. Thornton offers an alternative road map for America's relations with the Islamic world. He cogently argues that neoglobalist policies adopted by the United States after 9/11 have missed a priceless geocultural opportunity. With the White House rushing to distinguish friend from foe and us from them, a huge part of the Muslim world has been pushed into the 'them' camp. Meanwhile, America itself has been redefined in stark contrast to this phantom adversary. The resulting 'New World Empire' fails to recognize that jihadic militants have their worst enemy in civil Islam. Thornton sets forth a powerful case for salvaging this vital link between the United States and the world it has lost. As the enemy of our enemy, civil Islam should be our closest ally.
