Synopsis: Essays discuss the origin and geographic growth of Islam, the development of factions and sects, and Islam's modern resurgence

From Booklist: Gr. 9^-12. This collection of essays and book excerpts, part of the Turning Points in World History series, presents a view of Islam through mainly Western eyes. There are some stereotypes about "tribal life untouched by civilization" and "the Quran's preoccupation with battles, spoils and women," but the best writers are fair and informative, pointing out American misperceptions of the modern Islamic resurgence. An excellent essay discusses the problems of Muslim immigrants in the U.S. and American converts to Islam. Another writer describes the nature and causes of the current Islamic revival in the Middle East. Some of the best essays deal with Islamic literature and art, including religious inspiration through story and art, and the Islamic contributions to science and math. An appendix of original documents provides excerpts from the Koran and various personal perspectives, including a 1960 speech by Malcolm X. As one writer points out, these are subjects barely represented in most world history classrooms. Hazel Rochman
