About the book:

[Read by Wanda McCaddon]

Since the Gulf War, many have asked, ''Why do Middle Easterners think and act as they do?'' Of the 900 million people today who follow the Islamic faith, all are profoundly affected by the teachings of Muhammad and by Muslim traditions that have developed over the past thirteen centuries.

This comprehensive guide offers an informative and insightful introduction to Islam, both as a religion and as a political-economic force. It tells the story of Muhammad and the rise of Islam; outlines the sacred book, the Koran; explains the Five Pillars of Faith; explores the interplay between religion and government; describes the differences that divide Islam; and above all, shows the influence of Islam on world affairs.
