The Sayyid Qutb Reader Qutb, Sayyid 2007

Sayyid Qutb, whose writings inspired and continue to inspire al Qaeda and many other radical Islamic factions, was executed by Egypt in 1966.  A trained literary analyst, Qutb brings considerable intellectual power to his interpretation of the Qur’an. 

(Since I am also a trained literary analyst, I found this book a terrifying and enlightening read.)
