9781508634898: Never Subdued II: Radical Islam

From the award winning author of Never Subdued, Never Subdued II is an eye-opening look at the rise of Islam from unique religious and historical perspectives. It is an action packed true story with heroes and villains, keeping the reader in suspense. Never Subdued II tells how our founding fathers dealt with extortion on the high seas with virtually no assets at their disposal. Yet the founding fathers were dealing with fanatic fundamentalists with the same beliefs and attitudes as those causing acts of terror around the world today. Hook doesn’t spare fundamentalists of other religions either, with mentioned reviews of historical acts of terror from fanatics of three of the major religions. Included are Franklin Hook’s 10 Commandments of Muslim Diplomacy, which present the reader with suggestions of how to handle the most urgent problems of the world and gives us hope for the future.

From Kirkus Reviews:

TITLE INFORMATION RADICAL ISLAM: NEVER SUBDUED II Hook, Franklin CreateSpace BOOK REVIEW: So sit back dear reader and relax,” writes Hook (Never Subdued, 2011) at the beginning of his new book. “Read on and enjoy a true history with real heroes, real villains, and real outcomes.” The story he proceeds to tell is one that will be unfamiliar even to most of his American readers because this chapter in American history tends to be truncated or skipped entirely in most grade school and high school textbooks. It’s the short but complicated story of the diplomatic and military confrontations between the young United States under the leadership of President Thomas Jefferson and President James Madison and the Islamic and Ottoman states of Tripoli, Tunis, Algiers, etc.—the so-called “Barbary” states that outraged the U.S. by seizing the nation’s ships and enslaving sailors. In chapter after exciting chapter (), Hook presents a well-researched and well-documented narrative history of the diplomatic and naval collisions between the various Muslim beys and emirs and the various U.S. sailing masters, the captains and commodores who sailed the original small fleet of American frigates to the other end of the world (also expanding his story to include a very spirited account of the War of 1812). He dramatizes the stories of memorable figures like Lt. Stephen Decatur, Commodore Edward Preble, Lt. Isaac Hull, or the more checkered career of Commodore Richard Morris. This is vital, readable history written smoothly and professionally (), and Hook unites most of his matter with a warning about the present now that the West, once again, faces conflict with the Islamic states.

A vividly drawn history of the clash between the United States and the Barbary states.
