The House of Islam : a global history / Ed Husain.
Husain, Ed,
2018
London : Bloomsbury Publishing, 2018.
9781408872260 (hbk.) :
Today, Islam is to many in the West an alien force, with Muslims to be held in suspicion. This separation between the Muslim world and the West breeds misunderstandings which serve only to worsen tensions between the two. A failure to grasp the inner workings of religion and geopolitics continues to haunt American foreign policy and Western attitudes towards the Islamic world. The complexities and shadings must be better understood by the West not only to build a stronger, more harmonious relationship between the two cultures, but also for greater accuracy in predictions as to how current crises such as the growth of ISIS might develop and from where the next might emerge.
