Fawaz Gerges talked about his book Journey of the Jihadist: Inside Muslim Militancy, published by Harcourt. He described the rise and transformation of the Jihadist movement in the Middle East. He divided the evolution of the movement into three generations beginning in the mid-1970s and said that while the goal of the first generation was to target and overthrow their home governments in the region, the most recent generation, influenced by al Qaeda and the U.S. invasion of Iraq, is willing to attack any country they feel is working against them, including the United States. After his presentation he responded to audience members' questions. close
