Summary
This book began as a postscript entitled Due anni dopo (Two years later), intended as a brief appendix to the 30th printing of The rage and the pride (2002). But Fallaci chose to expand it into a book, a continuation of her ideas set in motion in her post-9/11 book. Here, she takes aim at the many attacks and death threats she received after the publication of The rage and the pride. Fallaci begins by identifying with one Master Cecco, the author of a heretical book who was burned at the stake during the Inquisition seven centuries ago, and proceeds with an analysis of the burning of Troy and the creation of a Europe that, to her judgment, is no longer her familiar homeland but rather a place best called Eurabia, a soon-to-be colony of Islam. Fallaci explores her ideas in historical, philosophical, moral, and political terms, addressing taboo topics with sharp logic--From publisher's description
