Challenge your preconceptions and explore the intricacies of the hearts and minds of Muslims across the world.
In The House of Islam: A Global History, Ed Husain expertly and compassionately guides us through the nuances of Islam and its people, contending that the Muslim world need not be a stranger to the West, nor its enemy, but a peaceable ally.
Ed Husain is the author of The Islamist, a memoir of his time inside radical Islamism. Having rejected extremism, he now advises governments and political leaders on Islam. He is a senior fellow at Civitas, Institute for the Study of Civil Society in London and a global fellow at the Woodrow Wilson International Centre in Washington DC. He cofounded Quilliam, the world’s first counter-extremism think-tank in Britain.
