Given the upheaval in the world today, often based upon alleged religious conflict, I suggested this book to my book club. I had to apologize to them somewhat because it turned out to be the history of the European and Asian worlds with regard to the topic – very extensively covered. As a history major myself I did not find this cumbersome, but others without my pre-vocational interests in history found it hard yakka to get through.
