Helpful and insightful,
This review is from: Muslims and the West (Paperback)
I found this book very helpful in understanding some of the history relating to the relation between Muslims and the Secular/Christian West; in addition to unraveling some of the secrets relating to certain attitudes and names.
Understanding the history helps to be better placed to interpret current relations. I also, felt that this book with is a compilation of several authors, was helpful in putting forward some good ideas about future relations.
The language of the book is very academic; and it can be a struggle to understand without appropriate referencing help.
All together: worth reading and I recommend it for all those who are looking to harbor better relations between Muslims and the West.
