This book is big and not necessarily for a beginner on the subject, but what it lacks in brevity it more than makes up for in depth and the methodical manner in which it builds its argument and analysis. Show this book a bit of patience and you will have a whole new template, with which to interpret some of the most pressing contemporary issues of international importance.
For example it demonstrates, using the 'insider texts' (that are freely available) how sharia law is constituted, how it is made incumbent upon Muslims (both those that are politically active and those that are not) to follow, how it is incorporated in the constitutional documents of organisations relied upon by Western governments and considered as partners (or advisers) by churches. Most importantly, how non-Muslims have been convinced or blind-sided by multiple narratives designed to silence opposition while preventing real investigation.
This book collates in one place a good number of the sources, you would need to explain and formulate a variety of arguments, about how this most important subject matter influences politics, security, democracy and human rights today.
