Good reading on Islam


On Friday, WORLD Magazine will publish an article detailing how the National Endowment for the Humanities is using taxpayer funds to promote Islam in the United States. One expert on Islam we consulted to assess the books shipped by NEH, Dr. Daniel Pipes, has on his website an excellent list of English-language books that offer an accurate look at Islam. Below are his suggestions and comments, starting with books on the religion and proceeding to premodern history, modern history, and then specific issues. (For more information on the books and excellent analysis of Middle Eastern developments, visit Pipes’ website.)
