The First Muslim
Available in Stock
How did Muhammad, an 'outsider' of humble origins, come to revolutionize his world as a radical thinker who challenged the social and political order, and whose influence is felt so strongly in today's politics and religion? Lesley Hazleton, who reported on the Middle East for more than a dozen years, has produced a readable and demystifying study of the prophet of Islam, telling his dramatic story of trial and triumph and combining early eyewitness sources with historical research and psychological insight. Felt-tip mark on lower trimmed edge.
