Looking for a really good one-stop book on Islam and Muslims to recommend to friends and relations? Islam & Muslims is up-to-date, well-informed, insightful, and sympathetic without being evasive.
Islam & Muslims is really very, very good. I can attest that I truly enjoyed reading it, taking great satisfaction in the way that it managed time after time to ‘get it right’.
Mark Sedgwick’s Islam & Muslims is an accessible and informative survey of the way Islam is actually practiced today, written in a refreshingly direct style. It will appeal especially to the general reader seeking a knowledgeable but nontechnical view of Muslim societies.
A user-friendly book that is beneficial to a popular audience....It is particularly useful for non-Muslims who are newly encountering Muslim communities in the West or are traveling in or moving to a Muslim-majority country....Islam & Muslims is one of the best books of its kind in English to date.
