This book presents the results of the Gallop World Poll, focusing on the responses from throughout the Muslim world. The World Poll was born in the aftermath of 9/11/01, and was conducted from 2005 through 2007.

Chapter titles:

Islam's Silenced Majority
Who Are Muslims?
Democracy or Theocracy?
What Makes a Radical?
What Do Women Want?
Clash or Coexistance?

This is a valuable book. The authors expose our prejudices about Islam and the Muslim world, and provide solid data on how members of the Muslim world see themselves and the West. ( )

A fascinating and well-documented look at the real Muslims. We hear so much propaganda here selling hatried of Muslims that it's humbling to see the quotes and survey results here. For example, I did not know that the Koran forbids racism. As with our Christian Bible, practice does not always follow scripture, but it is reassuring to see so many admirable quotes from the Koran. The book is very circumspect indeed about challenging myths; it simply makes a case that Muslims are human, and that Islam is not demonic. I think it is the duty of Americans to know something about the culture we have been attacking for so long. ( )
