    Bernard Lewis examines the historical roots of the frustrations and resentments that dominate the Islamic world today and that are increasingly being expressed in acts of terrorism. He looks at the theological origins of political Islam and tells us what the Islamic doctrine of jihad has meant at different times in history.

    This is the best treatment of the issues around Islam that I've ever read.

    Clarence, ninth Earl of Emsworth, has good health, a large income, and a first-class ancestral home with gravel soil and rolling parkland. But these blessings count for nothing in the presence of a certain Sir Gregory Parsloe; Lord Emsworth is convinced he has evil designs on his pre-eminent pig, Empress of Blandings. It is fortunate for Lord Emsworth that there is at least one member of the family upon whom he can rely: The Hon. Galahad Threepwood is at hand.

    The single best interpreter of PGW is Frederick Davidson. But a very close second is Mr. Sinden. This is an excellent rendition of a hilarious novel.

    Someone has stolen, yet again, Uncle Tom's antique silver cow-creamer. Suspicions fall on Wilbert Cream, believed to be a wealthy American practical joker and kleptomaniac known as Broadway Willie. But the incident only marks the beginning of Bertie Wooster's problems.

    Overall

    I have virtually everything ever recorded by Frederick Davidson reading Wodehouse. He is, without doubt, the best interpreter of Wodehouse's works.

    But Mr. Davidson was obviously ill when he recorded this and it shows. Its a noble effort, but painful to listen to. I cannot recommend it.
