Muhammad: A Biography of the Prophet
Karen Armstrong
0062508865
September 1993
Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
In a meticulous quest for the historical Muhammad, Armstrong first traces the West's long history of hostility toward Islam, which it has stigmatized as a "religion of the sword." This sympathetic, engrossing biography portrays Muhammad (ca. 570-632) as a passionate, complex, fallible human being--a charismatic leader possessed of political as well as spiritual gifts, and a prophet whose monotheistic vision intuitively answered the deepest longings of his people. Armstrong ( The Gospel According to Woman ) refutes the Western image of Muhammad as an impostor who used religion as a means to power, an attitude encapsulated in a psychotic dream episode in Salman Rushdie's The Satanic Verses. Denying that Islam preaches total intransigence, she finds in the Prophet's teachings a theology of peace and tolerance. The...

Sound and Fury: The Parallel Lives and Fateful Friendship of Muhammad Ali and Howard Cosell
Dave Kindred
0743262115
February 2006
Hardcover
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Veteran sportswriter Kindred seeks to "recover Muhammad Ali from mythology and Howard Cosell from caricature" with interlocking portraits that trace the rising careers of the boxer and the sportscaster to their first meeting in the early 1960s and then through the creation of one of television's most popular bantering couples. Their on-air playfulness didn't necessarily translate into full friendship. Kindred carefully notes that while Cosell supported the heavyweight champion's right to refuse induction into the army during Vietnam, he never expressed support for Ali's actual position. Likewise, Ali knew exactly how the relationship benefited them, once telling Cosell, "You know you need me more than I need you." Kindred's close relationships with both men inform the story without overwhelming it, and he depicts...

Greatest: Muhammad Ali
Walter Dean Myers

November 2001
Paperback
·
 
From School Library Journal
Gr 7 Up-An introduction to Ali's life from his childhood to the present day, focusing on his career and the controversies surrounding him. Both his talent in the boxing ring and his showmanship earned him international fame, while his refusal to accept the stereotypical role of a black athletic star in the 1960s and his membership in the Nation of Islam brought him notoriety. Myers interweaves fight sequences with the boxer's life story and the political events and issues of the day. He doesn't shy away from reporting on the brutality of the sport and documents the toll it has taken on its many stars. Ample black-and-white photographs of the subject in and out of the ring illustrate the book. Covering Ali is a daunting task, especially since dozens of books and hundreds of articles have been written about...

King of the World: Muhammad Ali and the Rise of an American Hero
David Remnick
0375702296
October 1999
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
You'd think there wouldn't be much left to say about a living icon like Muhammad Ali, yet David Remnick imbues King of the World with all the freshness and vitality this legendary fighter displayed in his prime. Beginning with the pre-Ali days of boxing and its two archetypes, Floyd Patterson (the good black heavyweight) and Sonny Liston (the bad black heavyweight), Remnick deftly sets the stage for the emergence of a heavyweight champion the likes of which the world had never seen: a three-dimensional, Technicolor showman, fighter and minister of Islam, a man who talked almost as well as he fought. But mostly Remnick's portrait is of a man who could not be confined to any existing stereotypes, inside the ring or out.

In extraordinary detail, Remnick depicts Ali as a creation of his own imagination as we follow the...

The Unifying Theory of Everything
Muhammed A. Asadi
0595129048
Sept 2000
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
In the past few decades, physicists have uncovered a hidden order in nature; some have called it the Cosmic Code. Based on this order, scientists aim to uncover a grand unifying Theory of Everything (TOE). Once this order is decoded, it is envisioned by some that all fields of knowledge could be linked together based upon it. Using the work of experts in various fields, this book links testable scientific evidence in the Koran with modern discoveries that lead to a normative decoding of that order. The book is unique and has the potential to evoke great interest among scientists and lay people alike because of its non-traditional linking of science and religion.

The work leading to the writing of this book, and the book itself can well be described as the “most important discovery” of...

Book Description
Contrary to the “natural order” conjectured by Herbert Spencer (1820-1903) in his Social Darwinism, which was natural only to the extent of a reproduction of the “social construction” of a particular type of status quo, the Justice Paradigm, based upon the Koran presents objective reality of a normative and positive nature based on the larger scale governance of the universe. It is as the Theory of Everything, envisioned by physicists. It transcends all societies.

Book Description
The Koran from the beginning has sought conciliation with the “People of the Book.” It presented itself as “all-inclusive” to members of all religions based on their sincerity in accepting the truth when it gets to them. In this context, it states that all those who believe in God and the last day, regardless of label, will have nothing to fear. Christians are termed as the “closest” to the Muslims in “love”(compared to all other groups). Mary, the mother of Jesus is honored in the Koran as, “a woman chosen above the women of all nations” (Koran 3:42).


Champ: The Story of Muhammad Ali
Tonya Bolden
0375824014
December 2004
Hardcover
·
 
From School Library Journal
Starred Review. Grade 1-5 - This picture-book biography touches on some of the most complex and fascinating aspects of the boxing champion's life, such as his conversion to Islam, his refusal to fight in Vietnam, and his penchant for boastful rhymes. Bolden's engaging text has a free-verse structure punctuated with enthusiastic exclamations that is enjoyable to read aloud. The book is ideal for browsing or to highlight in a booktalk, but it may not appeal to patrons seeking a straightforward source for assignments or young sports fans who want to see realistic art. The illustrations are striking from a graphic-design standpoint: Christie's use of bold pinks and yellows, sketchy pencil lines, and dark strokes of paint illuminate the playful text and emphasize Ali's exciting life and flamboyant personality....

Global Apartheid

Feb 2003
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
In the late Middle Ages, different regions of the world were almost equally developed. Then, in the course of a few hundred years, Western economic and political domination in the world led to pockets of development and underdevelopment, wealth and poverty, coexisting in close proximity to each other. A clear pattern emerged on a global and local scale. The emerging dominant philosophy was Capitalism, the driving force behind which was competition, based on ideas similar to Social Darwinism. As a result, an ideology of superiority emerged within the ruling elite, an idea that led to the patterned underdevelopment of certain groups of people on a local and global scale within the interconnected World System. Using sound economic and sociological analysis, this book unravels the global apartheid system and the channels...
