Islam. This is the eBook version of the printed book. If the print book includes a CD-ROM, this content is not included within the eBook version. Praise for Bernard Lewis "For newcomers to the subject el]Bernard Lewis is the man." "TIME Magazine " "The doyen of Middle Eastern studies." "The New York Times" "No one writes about Muslim history with greater authority, or intelligence, or literary charm." British historian Hugh Trevor-Roper "Bernard Lewis has no living rival in his field." "Al Ahram," Cairo (the most influential Arab world newspaper) "When it comes to Islamic studies, Bernard Lewis is the father of us all. With brilliance, integrity, and extraordinary mastery of languages and sources, he has led the way for el]investigators seeking to understand the Muslim world." "National Review" "Bernard Lewis combines profound depth of scholarship with encyclopedic knowledge of the Middle East and, above all, readability." "Daily Telegraph" (London) "Lewis speaks with authority in prose marked by lucidity, elegance, wit and force." "Newsday" (New York) "Lewis' style is lucid, his approach, objective." "Philadelphia Inquirer" "Lewis writes with unsurpassed erudition and grace." "Washington" " Times" " " An objective, easy-to-read introduction to Islam by Bernard Lewis, one of the West's leading experts on Islam " " For many people, Islam remains a mystery. Here Bernard Lewis and Buntzie Ellis Churchill examine Islam: what its adherents believe and how their religion has shaped them, their rich and diverse cultures, and their politics over more than 14 centuries. Considered one of the West's leading experts on Islam, Lewis, with Churchill, has written an illuminating introduction for those who want to understand the faith and the global challenges it confronts and presents. Whatever your political, personal, or religious views, this book will help you understand Islam's reality. Lewis and Churchill answer questions such as... - How does Islam differ from Judaism and Christianity? - What are the pillars of the Islamic faith? - What does Islam really say about peace and jihad? - How does the faith regard non-Muslims? - What are the differences between Sunni and Shi'a? - What does Islam teach about the position of women in society? - What does Islam say about free enterprise and profit? - What caused the rise of radical Islam?

The Official Cia Manual Of Trickery And Deception. Once a top-secret training manual for CIA field agents in the early Cold War Era of the 1950s, The Official CIA Manual of Trickery and Deception is now available to the general public. An amazing historical artifact, this eye-opening handbook offered step-by-step instructions to covert intelligence operatives in all manner of sleight of hand and trickery designed to thwart the Communist enemy. Part of the Company’s infamous MK-ULTRA—a secret mind-control and chemical interrogation research program—this legendary document, the brainchild of John Mulholland, then America’s most famous magician, was believed lost forever. But thanks to former CIA gadgeteer Bob Wallace and renowned spycraft historian H. Keith Melton, The Official CIA Manual of Trickery and Deception is now available to everyone, spy and civilian alike.

Phoebe Swift’s friends are stunned when she abruptly leaves a plum job to open her own vintage clothing shop in London—but to Phoebe, it’s the fulfillment of a dream, and her passion. Digging for finds in attics and wardrobes, Phoebe knows that when you buy a piece of vintage clothing, you’re not just buying fabric and thread—you’re buying a piece of someone’s past. But one particular article of clothing will soon unexpectedly change her life. Thérèse Bell, an elderly Frenchwoman, has an impressive clothing collection. But among the array of elegant suits and couture gowns, Phoebe finds a child’s sky-blue coat—an item with which Mrs. Bell is stubbornly reluctant to part. As the two women become friends, Phoebe will learn the poignant tale of that little blue coat. And she will discover an astonishing connection between herself and Thérèse Bell—one that will help her heal the pain of her own past and allow her to love again. Look for special features inside.

Learning With Labview. This is the eBook of the printed book and may not include any media, website access codes, or print supplements that may come packaged with the bound book. The goal of this book is to help students learn to use LabVIEW™ on their own. Learning with LabVIEW is the textbook that accompanies the LabVIEW Student Edition from National Instruments, Inc. This textbook, as well as the LabVIEW software (LabVIEW software is not included with this book), has undergone a significant revision from the previous edition. Learning with LabVIEW teaches basic programming concepts in a graphical environment and relates them to real-world applications in academia and industry. Understanding and using the intuitive and powerful LabVIEW software is easier than ever before. As you read through the book and work through the examples, we hope you will agree that this book is more of a personal tour guide than a software manual.
