Description

The world's second-largest religion, Islam is also one of the fastest growing and most politically potent. Despite its common theological and historical links with Christianity and Judaism, it is misunderstood by many Westerners. Featuring quotations from the Qu'ran and traditions of Muhammad, this is an introduction to the history of Islam, its importance as a living faith, and its powerful influence on international politics. This edition also includes a new picture section and a more comprehensive discussion of the role of Islam in the modern world.show more
