Through his personal and professional experience, respected journalist George Negus explores the concerns surrounding one of the most debated topics in the world today: Islam.
What is Islam? What is it that Muslims believe and why? Why do they fight not just wars but jihads-holy wars? How great are the belief differences between Muslims, Jews and Christians?
Written in a very readable and nonacademic style, Negus dispels the myths and explores the mutual ignorance, beliefs, differences and philosophies concerning the three great religions, while explaining the entirely different way of life that is Islam. Through his contacts and his experience with the Islamic world, he examines the issues that have set Islamic and non-Islamic worlds against each other.
Negus has set out to demystify the issues, the misconceptions and prejudice that have set the Islamic and non-Islamic worlds against each other. In doing so he exposes the mutual ignorance between the Muslim and non-Muslim worlds.
