Saliba, George
[ASCM V2008] Contemporary Islamic Civilization

Please keep in mind that this review is more than 5 years old.

Sucks. Professor preaches more than he teaches, and anyone who sits though his lectures can see why he's up to his neck in bad press. The whole concept of this course ought to be rethought, especially since this is likely one of the most important fields that a university can teach in this day and age. Sure he's entertaining, but that's really no the point. He's dismissive of important issues and worse, he's so blinded by his own opinions that he cheats his class out of a learning experience.
