Jerusalem Post columnist Caroline Glick has gained international recognition for her writing on Israel and the U.S. in the face of existing and increasing Islamic fundamentalism. The Shackled Warrior brings together in one collection some of her most eye-opening pieces. This collection includes: * An essay comparing and contrasting Woodrow Wilson and George W. Bush * A nuanced, fresh approach to the politics of Holocaust denial * An interview with imprisoned spy Jonathan Pollard – I fell in love with two women – Israel and the U.S. It doesn’t work in private life and it doesn’t work in politics. * An analysis of academic cowardice toward Israel in institutions like Cambridge University’s Clare College * An analysis of enemy propaganda influencing broadcasts of al-Hurra (more extreme [on some issues] than al-Jazeera), funded by the U.S. government *A demographic analysis of the Middle East that might surprise you+* Reflections on the battle over public discourse and the language used: 'terrorists' vs. 'militants' * Brave statements by Catholic and Muslim leaders ... At the conclusion of this collection of her writings, Glick calls on Jews – really, for those who live by the principles of liberty and rule of law that stem from Judaism – to emulate Pope Benedict XVI's willingness to judge. In his introduction, R. James Woolsey, former director of Central Intelligence, describes Glick's book as 'more than just a remarkable set of well-written and vivid columns and reports… If your taste runs to appreciating skillful and direct confrontation of cant, duplicity, appeasement, and wishful thinking – along the lines of the writings in the 1930’s of George Orwell and Winston Churchill, but on today’s manifestations of the issues those men confronted so brilliantly – then you’ve got the right book in hand. 'Caroline B. Glick,' Woolsey continues, 'highlights these underlying trends while analyzing events as they unfold both globally and in Israel. This extraordinary collection… is a must-read for all who care about winning the war against the multifarious forces of global jihad.' Blurbs for The Shackled Warrior from major figures in Israeli politics and journalism 'In eloquent and passionate prose, Caroline Glick examines some of the most important and troubling issues facing Israel and the world. Her message is clear and coherent: Islamic fundamentalism is the greatest challenge facing the West today. 'Benjamin Netanyahu, Prime Minister of Israel 'In a world of self-deception and the desire to find false comfort by escaping the challenges facing the free world and Israel, it is important to hear the sober voice of Caroline Glick which reminds us that the real answers to building a secure world are based on values and not in immediate political gratification.' Natan Sharansky+Distinguished Senior Fellow, the Shalem Center 'Caroline is the sharpest of commentators on Israel and the region - withering in her critique, and all too often vindicated.
