New York Times bestselling author and Islam expert Robert Spencer offers an honest and telling portrait of the founder of Islam – perhaps the first such portrait in half a century – and draws out what his life implies for reforming Islam and repulsing Islamic terrorists. He relies solely on primary sources considered reliable by Muslims and evaluates modern biographies to show how Muhammad has been changed for Western audiences, lulling them into consoling but false conclusions. With extensive documentation, Spencer details Muhammad’s development from a preacher into a political and military leader and recounts a life that has come to affect our world today. Recognizing the true nature of Islam, Spencer argues, is essential for judging the prospects for large-scale Islamic reform, the effective prosecution of the War on Terror, the democracy project in Afghanistan and Iraq, and immigration and border control protection of the United States from terrorism.
