Saliba, George
[ASCM V2008] Contemporary Islamic Civilization

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

The failings of George Saliba have nothing to do with his opinions, which he is entitled to, but the fact that he is so intolerant of others opinions and at times so scatter-brained that he cannot remember his own. I think he is one of the worst professors at Columbia. Horrible lectures, junk drawer readings, and no cohesion. It is really a shame that Columbia doesn't fill his most important of posts with someone worth your time. In this day in age we could use a professor who could give a window on the Islamic world, not someone just looking to spout off in useless rants in front of students.
