3.0 out of 5 stars a concise introduction to Muhammad's life, religion and politics, 23 Dec 2010
This is a very short book that could be read in one seat, yet it contains substantial information about Muhammad's life, teachings and politics. Michael Cook draws both from traditional Muslim sources (such as the "Sira" of Ibn Ishaq and, obviously, the Koran) and from modern criticism.
I particularly enjoyed Chapter 2, a concise presentation of the traditional account of Muhammad's life, as opposed to other chapters where the author attempts to question the historical reliability of the traditional sources.
