About the Book

This book is the second volume in a trilogy of works which commenced with Jihad in Trinidad and Tobago. It is in fact a journey of liberation traced through a series of texts of western discourse culminating in the discursive rupture that the works of Michel Foucault constituted. Liberation is then premised upon exiting the racist worldview of the North Atlantic via/towards alternate non-western discourse one of which is Islamic discourse. The third volume of the trilogy deals with the discursive origins of Al Qaeda within the ambit of Islamic discourse (forthcoming).
