Historian Pietrusza on Spencer’s History of Jihad: “Essential account of a millennium-old war on human freedom”

Bestselling author David Pietrusza has been called a “scholar, author, editor, and renaissance man” and “a 21st century Theodore White,” and “one of the most accomplished historians in the U.S.” He has written or edited over three dozen books, including the superb Rothstein: The Life, Times, and Murder of the Criminal Genius Who Fixed the 1919 World Series, as well as several marvelously entertaining and superbly constructed accounts of American presidential elections: 1920: The Year of the Six Presidents; 1932: The Rise of Hitler and FDR―Two Tales of Politics, Betrayal, and Unlikely Destiny; 1948: Harry Truman’s Improbable Victory and the Year that Transformed America; and 1960: LBJ vs. JFK vs. Nixon — The Epic Campaign That Forged Three Presidencies.

And so I was deeply honored when this accomplished and superlative historian read an advance copy of my new book, The History of Jihad From Muhammad to ISIS, and commented:

Few Westerners know more about Islam and jihad than Robert Spencer. Fewer still write with greater honesty or more fearlessly. A concise but essential account of a millennium-old war on human freedom and dignity.
