A speaker of Arabic, he mingled with ordinary Muslims, prominent clerics, and heads of state alike to paint a ground-level picture of Islamic life as it is being changed by the Western war on terror. The countries and regions through which Trofimov travels, from Sarajevo to Kandahar, reveal the pitfalls of trying to revamp a civilization that the West largely misunderstands. A sensitive, provocative portrait of a critical period in Muslim history, Faith at War introduces surprising ties between the Islamic world and our own.
