More thoughtful analyts know that militant Islamic momvements existed long before September 11th.  I make it an effort to collect books on political Islam, Islamism, jihad-centered groups, etc that predate 2001. This, in order to view radical movements without the poison of 9/11's violence to color our contextual understanding of a global, decades-old movement.  Cudsi and Hillal Dessouki's 1981 article anthology, Islam and Power, is one of those early books.  Its reference lists are  very interesting, and I thought I'd share them with you.
