No God but God: The Origins and Evolution of Islam

No god but God: The Origins and Evolution of Islam - Reza Aslan This youth oriented version of Alsan's larger work is excellent at providing a quick, clear overview of Islam. Not only will youth (high school) enjoy it, but adults looking for a quick introduction will find it to be a good starting place. Alsan clearly intends this for a Western audience and in addition to the history, addresses jihad and women's rights in separate chapters.
