Following the runaway success of his bestseller 'The World From Italy', George Negus, one of Australian television's most respected journalists and popular personalities, turns his attention to Islam.
What is Islam? What is it that Muslims believe and why? Why do they fight not just wars but jihads - holy wars? How great are the belief chasms between Muslims, Jews and Christians?
George Negus has travelled extensively throughout the Middle East and Asia, from his days on Foreign Correspondent to the present - just recently returned from the Middle East researching both post-September 11 and post-Bali problems, and pre-war issues.
In this book, drawing on this experience, George dispels the myths and explores the mutual ignorance, beliefs, differences and philosophies concerning the three great religions, while explaining the entirely different way of life that is Islam. Through his personal and professional contacts and his experience with the Islamic world, he examines the issues that have set Islamic and non-Islamic worlds against each other.
