Description - Islam & Muslims by Mark Sedgwick
While many books are devoted to the study of Islam, and dozens more to specific Muslim societies (usually Arab ones), this is the first to bring together both, explaining Islam in theory and in practice across the diverse Muslim world. Readers learn not just what Islam says about everything from the nature of God to marriage to politics, but also how individual Muslims (traditional or modern, devout or barely observant) apply teachings in everyday life.
