Well worth the 16 dollars,
This review is from: The 'Wahhabi' Myth: Dispelling Prevalent Fallacies and the Fictitious Link (Paperback)
Since the 'Wahhbi' term is used so frequently by the Western Media and associated with bin Laden, I wanted to get a another perspective of this commonly used word. I was impressed that Oliver did not blindly editorialize or state his own opinions about this subject. He clearly backed each point with a resource and explained thoroughly in the footnotes. I believe the author did an extraordinary job in trying to simplify the immense subject by stating what is being portrayed by the 'Western Media'and pointing out the fallacies of these so-called experts.
Who should read this book:
Anyone who wants to gain an insightful information about 'Wahhabism' and what it really is.
Anyone who is interested in another point-of-view about 'Wahhabism' and will not see it on CNN or FoxNews.
Anyone who has read about 'Wahhabism' from other authors and so-called experts such as Gold, Delong-Bas, Schwartz, etc. should read this book.
