I really appreciated this introduction to the history of conflict between Islam and the West. It was especially fascinating to see the obsession with cultural history that seems to be a characteristic of many Middle Eastern countries.

I guess that just the nature of an introduction, though. There's a nice bibliography that I plan to p...more
A history of the conflict between the two sons of Abraham - Isaac and Ishmael - and their seed.

Obviously not bedtime reading, but I appreciated its perspective on our current conflict(s).
