A World Without Islam by Graham E. Fuller *GIVEAWAY* CLOSED

This giveaway is now CLOSED. Congratulations to Linda, Bobble and Forget Shyness Reviews for winning.

A World Without Islam


-information taken from the Hachette Book Group website

What if Islam never existed? To some, it's a comforting thought: no clash of civilizations, no holy wars, no terrorists.

But what if that weren't the case at all? In A WORLD WITHOUT ISLAM, Graham E. Fuller guides us along an illuminating journey through history, geopolitics, and religion to investigate whether or not Islam is indeed the cause of some of today's most emotional and important international crises. Fuller takes us from the birth of Islam to the fall of Rome to the rise and collapse of the Ottoman Empire. He examines and analyzes the roots of terrorism, the conflict in Israel, and the role of Islam in supporting and energizing the anti-imperial struggle. Provocatively, he finds that contrary to the claims of many politicians, thinkers, theologians, and soldiers, a world without Islam might not look vastly different from what we know today.

Filled with fascinating details and counterintuitive conclusions, A WORLD WITHOUT ISLAM is certain to inspire debate and reshape the way we think about Islam's relationship with the West.

Graham E. Fuller is a former vice chairman of the National Intelligence Council at the CIA, in charge of long-range strategic forecasting. He is an adjunct professor of history at Simon Fraser University and the author of numerous books about the Middle East.

I am interested to see if it is well balanced or bigoted against Islam.

With everything that has been going on in the world, Islam ideology has become forefront. My interest in Islam and their history piqued when my daughters were stationed in the Middle East with the military. A World Without Islam sounds like a very interesting book, with considerable insights.

Thank you for hosting this giveaway.
