Islam: Faith, Culture, History has been conceived as both a means of understanding a religion, lifestyle and worldview, and as an essential reference book. It provides a clear and balanced insight into what has emerged -- for the West -- as the most perplexing and misunderstood cultural, political, and economic force in the modern world. Paul Lunde's lucid explanation of Islam will appeal to students of comparative religion, those with an interest in political and social history, and the general reader.
