Cover of "The Manchester Manual" -- also known as "the Jihadist encyclopedia".

The Manchester Manual (also known as the Jihadist encyclopedia) is a document prepared in the late 1990s, that western counter-terrorism analysts have described as a manual for terrorism.[1][2]

Spokesmen for the George W. Bush Administration attributed the resistance to interrogation of suspected al-Qaeda members to instructions in this document.[1]
