Advice to missionaries to Islamic populations, particularly the Muslims of India; casts much indirect light on Western perceptions of Islam as of 1916. Fully half the book is a survey of the history and condition of Islam; followed by advice on strategy and tactics, and twenty pages of bibliography on then-current studies of Islam. In the process distinguishes systematically between what scholars hold about Islam, what Muslims actually believe, and what Muslims may be persuaded to believe.
