In his thought-provoking book, War on Terrorism or American Strategy for Global Dominance, Shah Manzoor Alam, Ph.D. notes that although "distinguished scholars" have produced works on the Afghanistan-Iraq wars, none to his knowledge have analyzed the impact of this "catastrophic" war on Islam and on the Muslim world.
