If you haven't read Juan Cole's book, "Mohammad: The Prophet of Peace, Amid the Clash of Empires, It's an excellent book. 

I mean I recently read it and I actually had a meeting with the author and I was just so impressed with how he showed clearly that the Prophet SAW was far from a warmonger which we know that he really was constantly looking for avenues of peace.

" -Shaikh Hamza Yusuf

About how the Prophet(SAW)'s political stance changed in Medina

" -Shaikh Hamza Yusuf

A beautiful book that just came out recently by Juan Cole, who's a brilliant scholar of Islam in the United States...he makes a very compelling argument that the prophet said and did everything to avoid war.  That he was not somebody that was a war monger by any stretch.

" -Shaikh Hamza Yusuf
