9780099564324: No God But God: The Origins, Evolution, and Future of Islam

*Ten years on from 9/11, much of the Muslim faith remains largely unknown and misunderstood in the West. *While there have been a number of successful books on the topic of Islamic history - from Karen Armstrong's Islam: A Brief History to Bernard Lewis's The Crises of Islam - there is surprisingly no book for a popular audience about Islam as a religion, let alone one by an author from an Islamic background. *No God But God fills that gap, addressing issues of belief: the difference between the Quran and the Bible, the meaning of the Hajj, the Muslim relationship with Jesus, the Muslim attitude towards Jews, equality between the sexes and more. * This revised and updated edition includes a wealth of new material and new chapters covering recent uprisings in Tunisia, Egypt and Libya; the changing face of Islam in Europe and North Africa; and a number of topics of heated debate (the veil controversy; Islam & women; Iraq War as a Jihadi recruiting agent etc).

About the Author:

Reza Aslan is a comparative religions scholar from Harvard, who is also a graduate of the Iowa Writers' Workshop.

Review:

"Beautiful [and] fascinating" * Metro * "Truly illuminating" -- AS Byatt * The Guardian * "A revelation" * Yasmin Alibhai-Brown * "Aslan is a superb narrator, bringing each century to life with vivid details and present tense narration that makes popular history so enthralling... A terrific read" * Glasgow Herald * "Outstandingly useful ... always balanced, vivid and readable" * The Independent *
