The story of Islam and the reality behind the headlines. Differences and conflicts make for sensational headlines, but this Brief Guide to Islam starts with the similarities between the major Abrahamic faiths of Judaism, Christianity and Islam. Only then can the differences be understood. By exploring the beliefs, history and politics of the ordinary people of Muslim countries, Paul Grieve offers a fully comprehensive survey that combines authoritative analysis with carefully chosen primary sources, lists, storytelling and illustrations. The result is user-friendly book that challenges cliche and stereotype in areas such as art women, banking, war, Malcolm X, literature and the dos and don'ts of visiting a Muslim country. It also exposes the big issues behind the headlines: can Islam support true democracy? Is true democracy what the West really wants for the Middle East? Or are we merely seeking a cover of legitimacy for a policy of 'might is right'?
