Slave of Allah

October, 2007

slave-of-allahPSU Anthropology Professor Katherine C. Donahue has written Slave of Allah, published by University of Michigan Press.

In 2006, Zacarias Moussaoui became the first person to stand trial for the events of September 11, 2001. Donahue was present at the trial. Based on firsthand evidence, Donahue provides a unique picture of an al Qaeda convert in the process of forming his identity just when he is calling the death sentence upon himself. It is the story of Moussaoui’s opposition to western democracy, seen through the experience of a man who calls himself a “slave of Allah.”
