You think you know about Islam, but did you know that Islam teaches that Muslims must wage war to impose Islamic law on non-Muslim states? Or that American Muslim groups are engaged in a huge cover-up of Islamic doctrine? These and other “politically incorrect” facts are revealed by Robert Spencer in The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam (and the Crusades). Spencer traces the history of Islam, the teachings of the Qur’an, and the Crusades and reveals the myths and realities related to Islamic law, the treatment of women, and the continuing jihad.

This is a fast-paced, politically incorrect tour that you will not hear about in school or on the evening news, but it will give you all the information you need to understand the true nature of the global conflict America faces today.

Quotes & Awards

  • “To win the War on Terror, we must understand our enemies. The courageous and indefatigable Robert Spencer busts myths and tells truths about jihadists that no one else will tell. The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam (and the Crusades) is indispensable reading.”

    Michelle Malkin, New York Times bestselling author

  • “In this book, Robert Spencer tells the truth that few in the US or Europe wish to face…Here is a devastating riposte to that revisionism—and a clarion call for the defense of the West before it is too late.”

    Ibn Warraq, author of Why I Am Not a Muslim and editor of Leaving Islam and What the Koran Really Says

  • “Robert Spencer, an expert on historical jihad, responds with a ‘politically incorrect’ but academically sound and challenging work. Spencer displays an enormous amount of well-researched material. He throws the ball back into the camp of Arabist historians.”

    Dr. Walid Phares, author of Lebanese Christian Nationalism: The Rise and Fall of an Ethnic Resistance

  • “With a provocative and irreverent style, Robert Spencer assails, with much erudition, the taboos imposed by the Politically Correct League. A daring tonic that teaches fundamental truths.”

    Bat Ye’or, author of Eurabia and The Decline of Eastern Christianity under Islam

  • “Sweeping away the politically correct myths about a tolerant, peaceful Islam brutalized by demonic Christian Crusaders, Robert Spencer, in this powerful, important book, lets the facts of history speak for themselves…[A] rousing, straight-talking book.”

    Bruce S. Thornton, author of Greek Ways: How the Greeks Created Western Civilization

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David Robins | 2/18/2014

    " I don't know what scares me more: the nefariousness of the religion or the perfidy of the lengths adherents go to hide it. It reminds one of Scientology, and its "fair game" doctrine, among others. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ben | 2/11/2014

    " Politically Incorrect but Factually Correct as far as i can determine,one source being discussions with an Iraqi Christian i know. It's laid out well and easy to digest, although you may feel a little nervous reading on public transport (: which is something to think about, why should you be?). Robert Spencer does not believe most Muslims have the immediate mindset that he discusses here, but his point is that it is Inherent in the teachings of Islam. (Wikipedia: While admitting that he believes many Muslims are peaceful and decent people, he believes Muslim reformists will have a very difficult time because "the radicals actually do have a stronger theoretical, theological, and legal basis within Islam for what they believe than the moderates do.") This is by no means a definitive guide, you should read other books written by authors with other opinions. However you may not find so many that wear their heart on their sleeve so clearly. Most will be written under the guise of, or attempting, impartiality, few books are even mostly so. Unstated opinions and prejudices will therefore slip under your radar. This book in having a declared agenda enables you to engage with it's opinions and arguments head on with open eyes. As such I thoroughly recommend this book. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Ellen Keim | 2/9/2014

    " Don't go to anything by Robert Spencer for an objective look at Islam. He definitely has an agenda: he sees Islam as a threat to the West (if not the whole world). Some of his statements and allegations are more than politically incorrect, they are outrageous. The only reason to read this book is to see how narrow-minded bigots think. But don't buy it; get it from the library like I did. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 cheri madden | 2/1/2014

    " Scary if it is to be believed. A bit one-sided. I'd need to read other accounts of Islamic beliefs to form an opinion. If I based it on this book, I'd say we're all in big trouble in this country. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sara | 1/19/2014

    " Spencer makes some good points, Though nothing really new to me. His perspective was definiatly bias. There is alot of truths but they are also slanted. Overall,it is an ok summary. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Toni Nelson | 1/6/2014

    " Three stars is what I initially gave this book as it was so S L O W moving. I never knew much about the Crusades and Islam but this read confirmed the fact that, "Yes, people we are in a holy war. And that is all, I have to say about that!" "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Allison | 1/2/2014

    " Informative book. I feel like I don't know enough about Islam to accurately judge it based on content, but at any rate, even if the view is biased, Spencer seems to have done his research and gives good background as to the claims he suggests Islam makes etc. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Clay | 11/19/2013

    " The Crusades are not the source of the middle east conflict. I recommend this book to anyone who wants to understand the threat of Radical Islam and a little bit more about world history. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 James Moyer | 7/25/2013

    " Honest explanation of what Islam is. Includes quotes from Islam to defend statements that would appear as anit-Islamic. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Muslimah | 2/28/2013

    " Peace to you readers, I would like to encourage you to read up and learn more about Islam, you have regrettably been misinformed. Islam is, in fact, a peaceful and complete 'way of life', and I am thankful everyday that I am a Muslim. :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Noelle M | 7/11/2012

    " This was good nutshell coverage of the main topics about Islam that are addressed in popular writing. He doesn't say anything he doesn't source. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Linda J | 8/18/2011

    " I really enjoyed this book. It was well-referenced, easy to read and understand, and had several witty and thought-provoking tidbits. If you want to learn more about Islam and the Crusades I would definitely recommend this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Robert | 4/21/2011

    " An explosive critique of Islam which pulls no punches. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joshua | 3/29/2011

    " A lot of great information, with plenty of primary sources. However, the author has missed the mark and followed the Neocon Talking Points rather than look critically at the History of the Muslim world. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Amanda | 2/11/2011

    " This book preaches hatred and I am disgusted that something so blatantly discriminatory is regarded as remotely acceptable. Shame on Robert Spencer for spreading hatred. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eddie | 4/23/2010

    " Well written and very informative. "

    " The style of writing leaves a lot to be deserved, but their is definitely info in here worth reading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dean | 9/14/2009

    " Good overview of the reality of the Islamic culture, it's extremisms and the Koran. Also,
    a needed correction to the currant anti western slant as it pertains to the Crusades. A
    worthwhile read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David | 9/11/2009

    " I don't know what scares me more: the nefariousness of the religion or the perfidy of the lengths adherents go to hide it. It reminds one of Scientology, and its "fair game" doctrine, among others. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Dennis | 1/9/2009

    " Makes broad, sweeping, wrong generalizations. Intolerant. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Richard | 1/1/2009

    " Robert Spencer gives us some much-needed perspective on Islam and the Crusades, and counters the politically correct rubbish that the mainstream media wants us to believe. Read it. You'll be shocked. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Chase | 11/21/2008

    " There's only so much that you can take. I couldn't finish this one either. Yes, he does raise great points, but again it gets pretty mundane after a while.

    It is interesting to note that a fatwa was ordered on his head...so much for peace. "
