Islamic theories of war
A very interesting website I came across this morning, is Middle East Strategy at Harvard.
Raymond Ibrahim for instance posts a discussion on the lack of knowledge in academia about Islamic theories of war. For mission in the Arab world this may not be the first sort of knowledge we need ;-) but for understanding a culture and its history, this is not unimportant. In our own western studies, we have all learned of Clausewitz, have we not?
