IN THE MAIL: Efraim Karsh's Islamic Imperialism : A History. It's blurbed by such luminaries as Amir Taheri.

Interestingly, I thought I'd gotten it in the mail because of the blog, but my colleague Becky Jacobs, who doesn't blog, got one in the mail yesterday too. She teaches international law, so I guess Yale University Press is distributing this widely to law professors in related fields. The Amazon reader reviews are quite positive, though one reviewer does call it "Islamophobic," protesting that "Islam is a universal religon of peace and brotherhood."
