The following synopsis is from Select Books: http://tinyurl.com/67h57g

Imam Samudra, the mastermind of the October 2002 bomb attacks in Bali which killed more than 200 people, was sentenced to death in 2003. While in prison, he wrote a book putting forth his justification for "jihad". Upon publication in 2004, it became a bestseller. Now Muhammad Haniff Hassan, a Research Analyst at the Institute of Defence and Strategic Studies (renamed the S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies in January 2007) of the Nanyang Technological University has written this book to refute Imam Samudra's arguments. As "jihadist" arguments are often put forth in theological and juristic terms, a method that is traditionally used by Muslim scholars to address questions and issues, the author too takes a similar approach to counter Imam Samudra's ideas. This book offers criticism and an alternative viewpoint, which the author hopes will offer every reader, Muslim or non-Muslim, another way of interpretating the "truth" subscribed to by those who believe violence to be the only solution. He also hopes that this book will be a demonstration of how the Islamic theological and juristic approach works.
