the house of islam: a global history by ed husain
The House of Islam is an undeniably important and informative read.
We should all be knowledgeable about the cultures that surround us, in order to prevent blind prejudice, unnecessary judgement and dangerous stereotypes.
Nothing good comes from being ignorant; this is a lesson I learned this year, and has changed the way I look at everything.
Quite a dense read, but indeed valuable and worthwhile.
