The 1500 Year War Between Christianity and Islam: Conquest, Crusaders, and Jihad (Softcover)
This softcover touches upon the basic beliefs of the three major Abrahamic religions that have for better or worse shaped the history of humankind for three millennia. Cultural differences which can explain some of the misunderstandings between the West and the Islamic world. It does not specifically address any particular event that is not historically relevant.
"This retrospective historical and political study is based on the premise that the knowledge of historical facts is important to understanding of the present world conflicts and those that might be developed in the future, and is capable of offering solutions for the resolutions of those conflicts. Since Islam as a religion has been the target of criticism as the supposed main cause of the spread of terrorism around the world, I have paid more attention to the history of development of that religion."
