I've begun to read a very good book on strategic policies, published in 2002 by Alexandre del Valle, in French. I hope it will be translated soon into English. It's a insightful, extremely well documented work about Islam, islamism, and discusses cleverly and without passion the theories of S. Huntington about civilizations. The title is: "Le totalitarisme islamiste à l'assaut des démocraties", éditions des Syrtes, 24 rue de Sèvres, 75007 Paris. ("Islamist totalitarianism against democracies").
