How can Islamic terrorism be addressed if the West does not understand the fundamental basis of the problem; how can they understand the cause of the problem if it refuses to name it and discuss it? These are the questions posed by Ayaan Hirsi Ali in her book Heretic: Why Islam Needs a Reformation Now. In addition to being informative and topical, her book is challenging and confronting because it moves away from the politically correct discourse of many other publications of this type to speak directly about the issues underpinning the ideology of Islam and the political, cultural and religious norms it dictates. This is a refreshing dialogue because as she bravely analyses her own religion, and analyses its impact on the world, the author goes where many others refuse.
