A British professor of Islamic studies lectures a live Canadian audience. The titular "revolt" identifies the current chapter in the millennium-old clash between Christianity and Islam, a continuation of the medieval Crusades. Lewis's frosty, insular sarcasm punctuates his patronizing abridgment of thousands of years into forty minutes. Since a majority of Western readers know little of Islam, Lewis's expertise with his subject serves up beneficial brain food for most audio scholars. Listeners will learn the differences between the Sunni and Shiite Moslems, as well as the criteria for what constitutes a Jihad. The speaker invites three audience questions at the end.
