Great book - manages to explain the history of Islam in an engaging, interesting and understandable way. Having read this I felt I had a much better understanding of Islam and it's complexities - would highly recommend to those who want to further their knowledge of Islam.

I really enjoyed this book. Pretty grim subject matter as you would expect but is clear and well explained by Ovary. Clearly presented and fascinating insight into the high ranking Nazis.

5.0 out of 5 stars Interesting read, 3 Jan 2010
Would recommend to people with some previous knowledge of Islam/Iran as this makes it easier to read - I know I personally benefitted from having just read a book on Islam before this! Found this an interesting read and intelligent comment on politics in Iran, quite different from the media portrayal we often see. Would recommend.
