    1. Content wise the book is concise but comprehensive. The writer has included what can be included to support the thesis of the book.Most sections are written very well, but the rest are written for an audience that has already studied History. It shows the erudition of the writer but bares most readers to comprehend what he wants to say.A goodread for academicians. But I won't recommend this book to those, who want to just read a book on history/Islam.
