Islam-An Introduction: An Introductionby Annemarie Schimmel
Synopses & Reviews
'The topic is becoming more significant because Islam is the most rapidly growing religious in the world. This book provides a thorough and sophisticate, but at the same time clear-headed and reliable, overview.' --Kevin Lacey
For the general reader there are many profound insights of great consequence, for example, the passages on women, marriage, and inheritance, or the section on jihad, nearly always completely misunderstood in the press.
Includes bibliographical references (p. 145-150) and index.
