Phil Carter, a lawyer, but currently deployed in Iraq, has posted on the books he read to learn more about Islam. This would be a good place for anyone to start. Awhile back he did something similar for Iraq. Note this are books about Iraq, not the Iraq war. Like "Vietnam" some time ago, the word has taken on a different meaning to Americans.

To the Iraq list I would add Fromkin's "A Peace to End All Peace: The Fall of the Ottoman Empire and the Creation of the Modern Middle East."
