Culture books reviews al qaeda and what it means to be modern by john gray br terror and liberalism by paul berman youve got to fight for your right to be . Clearly the emphasis of the book is on what it means to be modern and al qaeda is only used sparingly but in my opinion very tellingly to illustrate the main thesis. Al quaeda and what it means to be modern by john gray is quite short but very provocative he packs a lot of ideas into a 119 page book he manages to include several different threads. Al qaeda is a product of modernity and of globalisation and it will not be the last group to use the products of the modern world in its own monstrous way gray pulls up by the roots the myth that the human condition can be remade by science and progress or political engineering
