There is no end of material out there on the topics of Islam, the Middle East, the Muslim world, terrorism, jihad, Sharia, and so on.  The books in this list are only a small selection and all highly recommended.  

In addition to these, there are Islamic scriptures – the Koran, the Hadiths (reported sayings and teachings of Mohammed, collected after his death), and the Sira (biographies of Mohammed, the most important one compiled by Ibn Ishaq in the mid-eighth century and called in Arabic Sirat Rasul Allah, the Life of the Messenger of God).  The Koran needs to be read in awareness of the chronology of its chapters, as the mildness of the earlier chapters from Mecca is ABROGATED by the violent verses from Medina.  See separate article on this website titled  Chronology Of The Koran And The Doctrine Of ABROGATION.
