Destiny Disrupted by Tamim Ansary

The book provides a sweeping historical account of the world from the perspective of Islamic civilization. It spans from the time of the Prophet Muhammad to the early 21st century, offering insights into how Muslims have seen their history unfold, which is markedly different from the Western narrative. The author delves into the rise and fall of empires, the evolution of Islamic thought, and the complex interactions between the Muslim world and the West. This narrative aims to bridge cultural divides by presenting a story that is often left out of typical Western-centric historical accounts, thus giving readers a more nuanced understanding of global history and the roots of contemporary geopolitical issues.
