4.0 out of 5 stars A wasted effort, 7 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Haas has applied all his legalistic knowledge and expertise to frame hundreds of criminal charges against Bush for human rights violation but his pleas for the trial of Bush as a war criminal have fallen on deaf ears. I don't think either the Americans or the Europeans or any one alse have the guts to follow up this book and put Bush on trial. But who will try? The US doesn't recognise the International Criminal Court or its judgements. So the Herculean effort that Haas has put in has been wasted.

5.0 out of 5 stars A new perspective on Islamic state, 7 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Fateh has done a signal service to the Muslim world by his book. I think Muslims of all sects must read it. I found it so engrossing and interesting that I finshed it in two or three sittings. For the first time an author has convinced me beyond doubt that there was not a single Islamic state in the world since the Prophet's death. Islam was usurped by dictators and despots and mullahs and moulvis who imposed their own version of Islam on their supine and submissive subjects/followers. Fatah gives the example of the Fatimide period in Iraq when three of the four imams, who established new Islamic schools of thought, were murdered by the Fatimid kings. This is a mould-breaking book which should be read by every thinking Muslim. Altough Fatha appends a long and comprehensive bibiliography, I would have appreciated if the specific sources of the numerous quotations in the book had heen given in a bracket after the quotattion ended or as a footnote. Well done Fattah!

4.0 out of 5 stars A classic work by Prof Hitti, 7 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: History of the Arabs (Paperback)
Hitti's book is a classic work on Arab history. It was published more than 70 years ago but it is still read with great interest. Arab or Islamic history is a 'grey area' but Hitti has managed to sift the facts from hearsay. Every statement he makes is substatiated by refernces. I would strongly recommend it to any reader.
