Islam: A Short History
Karen Armstrong (au)
One of the greatest of the world religions through the 1500 years of its existence, Islam has also been by far the most misunderstood. Seven centuries on from the last Crusade, the Holy Places that Islam occupies are oil wells; once the ‘Scourge of God’, its forces are now an affront to secular liberalism. The ‘fundamentalist’ fanatic; the oppressor of women; the ruthless terrorist; the tyrant: these are the stereotypes of the new-look Muslim. Karen Armstrong’s book cuts through the cliché to reveal a faith which has inspired as many scholars, mystics and poets as soldiers. Islam, she makes clear, has not only been one of the world’s most important and inspiring religions but the basis for one of its most illustrious civilizations. Maps.
