I urge anyone who wants a dispassionate analysis of the subject to read this book. Remember that this was written almost 50 years before 9/11, so that the emotional haze that current writings have are absent from his treatment of the topic.
Very much recommended as an introduction to the subject area.
As far as the actual book content, the book was recommended for my independent studies of Islam from an historical and modern day perspective. I had first heard the book on an Audiobook from Audible and the coming together of the purely spoken and written versions was quite interesting and educational in as far as the arabic names and transliterations. Anyone interested in knowing more about this culture/religion should read this book, in my opinion. It's recommended if not required reading!
