From the shadows of the ancient Middle East comes the terror known as the Hashishin, an order of professional assassins that evolved from the ancient and infamous Brotherhood of the Blood-Lickers. No group has had a more lethal influence on the world than this fraternity of killers. In this unique book Dr Haha Lung not only traces the complete history of the Hashishan, but explains the rules of Islamic warfare and the true concept of Jihad. Also included in graphic detail are proven fighting and self-defence techniques, including Fist and Fire and Assassin Unarmed Comba

An interesting book, that may give westerners some insite to where the mindset of a terrorist historically comes from - I felt the research behind it could have been presented with more strength. Read full review
