Book description
This book is based on the chapter of Rose Wilder Lane's The Discovery of Freedom on the rise of Islam and Mohammed's discovery and propagation of the idea that men are not ruled by authority.
Dr. Ahmad provides a foreword, annotations, corrections of the errors that Lane knew she had likely made, historical context of the events portrayed, and, incidentally, the presently accepted transliterations of all the Arabic names.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0915957736, Paperback)

Rose Wilder Lane in her best known book The Discovery of Freedom traces the six-thousand year development of freedom to the present day. Her book,published in 1943, became a classic of the modern libertarian movement.

Ms Lane sees no contradiction between religion and freedom because in the docrtine of monotheism, people came to believe in one creator who judges men's actions. Moreover, she sees that the laws of morality are woven into the fibre of creation and provides guidance for human behavior.

Ms Lane contends that there were three attempts to establish free socities. The first attempt was that of Prophet Abraham whose teachings were the first revolution against paganism and authoritarianism followed by Prophet Muhammad crowning the second attempt and then the American revolution.
