A Very Short Introduction, 6 Aug. 2002
An Inteligent and compact little book which is not a real attempt at a spiritual analysis but never the less might be useful. Though it does seem to linger a little too long on the aesthetics of various printed additions down the ages, but even so, in a relevant manner. Recomendable to a complete novice of Islam. One area of complaint : No mention of the good books criminal homophobia.
