Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The first book ever to critically examine every major tenet of Islam. Not a very flattering picture of the faith and its practitioners, but the truth, nevertheless.<P>"... a courageous and prophetic call to value and protect human rights, especially the rights of women". — National Catholic Reporter

Book News Annotation:

Warraq, a former Muslim who now lives in Ohio, examines the major principles of the world's second largest religion, presenting a less than flattering picture of the faith and its followers. He analyzes factors that influenced the writing of the Koran, chronicles the rise of Islam, and criticizes the dark side of the faith with chapters on the Salman Rushdie affair, the oppression of women in Muslim society, the authoritarian nature of Islamic law, and the suppression of basic rights in many Muslim countries. Contains a glossary.
