Read in September, 2011

This book is a very readable history of the world from an Islamic perspective. It focuses on the history of what the author terms the Middle World. Some information about European and Russian History are included, but not much about Africa despite the extensive trading relationships between Arab and African countries. The author does a good job of explaining the development of Islam and the different types of Islam that we see today. The end of the book which brings us up to the current day seems rushed and I prefer the different and more thorough analysis in A World without Islam by Graham Fuller.
