The book includes: a thumbnail history; the essentials of Islam; social insights & cultural norms. The perfect tool for : teachers, employers, travelers, law enforcement.
Government workers and the general public will find that they can quickly penetrate the stereotypes and misconceptions to appreciate the tenor and nuance of Arab and Muslim life. Without a better grasp of this subject, the citizens of liberal democracies are unsafe at home and at a disadvantage in the global competition for hearts and minds.
The first part of the book uses simple fact to outline its subject and to convey the basic elements of Arab culture and Islam. Here we learn the origins of such seemingly disparate American cultural elements as algebra and ice cream.
The second part of the book puts meat on this outline. It conveys the complexity of Arab and Muslim lives. Here are essays by leading Middle East scholars and journalists such as Juan Cole and Patrick Seale alongside the poetic first person impressions of Arab-Americans such as Nathalie Handal and Lisa Suhair Majaj.
