This work examines in detail the worldview of militant Islam in a minority social position in the West. The attempted coup d' etat launched by the Jamaat al Muslimeen on the 27 July 1990 is the basis of this analysis.

Figueira's book is one of the few attempts, by a Caribbean writer to document a topic such as this.
The attempted takeover in 1990, by the Jamaat al Muslimeen led by Imam Abu Bakr, forever
transformed the islands of Trinidad and Tobago and the region. The book takes into account Islamic Jihads impact in Trinidad and Tobago, yet its impact has been regional. Though I do not subscribe to a lot of what is written herein I still recommend this work as a first and a much-needed resource given the realities, facing the Caribbean in this 21st century, geo-political reality.

Page ix - Say: Surely my prayer and my sacrifice and my life and my death are (all) for Allah, the Lord of the worlds; 163. No associate has He; and this am I commanded, and I am the first of those who submit.
Page ix - Say: What! shall I seek a Lord other than Allah? And He is the Lord of all things; and no soul earns (evil) but against itself, and no bearer of burden shall bear the burden of another; then to your Lord is your return, so He will inform you of that in which you differed.
