Summary On 16 June 2011, three days before his 60th birthday, Ayman al-Zawahiri was declared the new leader of Al-Qaeda, replacing the fallen Osama bin Laden. The veteran Egyptian jihadist had little of his predecessor's charisma & enjoyed much less popularity, respect & celebrity. Yet, as scores of jihadi commanders have succumbed to their enemies' missiles, bombs & bullets, Zawahiri has soldiered on. His tenure as Al-Qaeda's leader has been marked by some of its darkest moments. The gravest such development has been the emergence of Islamic State as a separate & rival jihadist entity. The best way to gauge Zawahiri's response to these threats is by studying the official statements & public communiques that he has issued since taking the reins. This book provides the reader with professional translations of Zawahiri's key statements during his first five years as leader of Al-Qaeda.
