Following in the footsteps of Sir Richard Burton and Lawrence of Arabia, Pope's explorations of the people, politics, religion, and culture of Islamic nations shows there is no such thing as a monolithic "Muslim world." His probing and often perilous journeys--at one point he is forced to quote Koranic verse to argue against his being murdered by a top al-Qaeda leader--provide an eye-opening look at diverse societies often misportrayed by superficial reporting and why-they-hate-us politics.

Special advisory: please, when reading this book practise healthy skepticism.
Author is with the International Crisis Group - - also with ICG are Carl Bildt [who led the charge in Sweden to get WikiLeaks' Julian Assange]; Zbig Brzezenski, former National Security Advisor to President Carter involved with the original destabilization of the secular government of Afghanistan; and some other curious and suspicious characters.

Hugh Pope presents his modern-day explorations, mined from more than three decades, of the political, religion, and aspirartions of Muslim peoples to show the Middle East is much more than a monolithic "Islamic World."
To understand the nature of the Muslim people we need more insights as this thirty-year experience relates by a westerner.
