Summary

The phenomenal bestseller on Islam from one of Australia's most trusted journalists and popular personalities. 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 chasms between Muslims, Jews and Christians? George Negus has travelled extensively throughout the Middle East and Asia, from his days on Foreign Correspondent to the present, and has recently returned from the Middle East after researching both post-September 11 and post-Bali problems, and the Iraqi issues surrounding the Iraq war. In this book George dispels the myths and explores the mutual ignorance, beliefs, differences and philosophies concerning these religions, while explaining the entirely different way of life that is Islam. through his personal and professional contacts and experience with the Islamic world, he examines the issues that have set Islamic and non-Islamic worlds against each other.
