Book Review: "While Europe Slept"
A thought-provoking review (I can only imagine how intense the book is).... http://www.philly.com/mld/inquirer/entertainment/books/13896555.htm The review's conclusion:
Bawer's must-read book, in tandem with others, opens our eyes to an inescapable truth: Christians and Muslims fought wars for more than 1,000 years, with each at times conquering the other's territory by force. Non-Muslims need to know far more about Islam if they're going to take positions they can justify, whether that leads to cooperating with various Islamic world views or ultimately confronting them. Islam, we're often reminded these days, means "submission" in Arabic. Enlightenment, we should equally remember, means replacing half-baked notions and myths with facts.
