Bell's Introduction to the Qurʼān, Issue 8
Few aspects of American military history have been as vigorously debated as Harry Truman's decision to use atomic bombs against Japan. In this carefully crafted volume, Michael Kort describes the wartime circumstances and thinking that form the context for the decision to use these weapons, surveys the major debates related to that decision, and provides a comprehensive collection of key primary source documents that illuminate the behavior of the United States and Japan during the closing days of World War II.
Kort opens with a summary of the debate over Hiroshima as it has evolved since 1945. He then provides a historical overview of thye events in question, beginning with the decision and program to build the atomic bomb. Detailing the sequence of events leading to Japan's surrender, he revisits the decisive battles of the Pacific War and the motivations of American and Japanese leaders. Finally, Kort examines ten key issues in the discussion of Hiroshima and guides readers to relevant primary source documents, scholarly books, and articles.

You cannot just read the Qur'an. It is encrypted about fifteen different ways in an exegetical science called tafsir. Richard Bell's book is the best book that I have experienced to sort through it's encryption and there have been doctoral level dissertations at the prestigious Al Ahzar University in Cairo, Egypt - as well as the Hambali Madhab in Saudi Arabia.
It appears that Bell has taken apart the Haditha (biography of Muhammad by his companions or saHaba) sentence by sentence and clearly contextualized the Qur'an.
Traditional dogmatic scholars might use the "Tanwir al Miqbas min Tafsīr Ibn 'Abbās" which has nine separate and disputable chains of transmission.
Independently, Book one of the Bukhari, narrated by Aisha bint Abu Bakr, places Chapter (surat) 96 as the first revelation occuring August 10, 610 CE in the cave of Mount Hira, outside Mecca.
Quranic verse 15:87 mentions the first seven verses of the opener - which decisively places Chapter one in the fifth order at Mecca.
All this might be hard to understand - but it won't be once you read the book.
