Book Summary

Offers a riveting portrait of a group of young Yemeni-American men from an upstate New York steel town near Buffalo, who in spring 2001 attended an al-Qaeda camp and who may—or may not—have become America's first sleeper cell of Islamic terrorists, and the implications of their actions for themselves, for Muslims in America after September 11, and for America as a whole.
