A new book about Islam by a controversial German author reportedly has been dropped by Random House just a month before the publishing giant had been set to release it.

"Hostile Takeover -- How Islam Hampers Progress and Threatens Society," by Thilo Sarrazin could "seize on and amplify anti-Islam sentiments," sources close to the publisher told Bild Zeitung.

Random House said in a statement that Sarrazin "is free to publish his book at any time with another house."

Sarrazin, a German politician, has previously published controversial books, including "Germany Abolishes Itself" in 2010, which denounced what he said was the failure of Germany's post-war immigration policy.

He told Bild that he had signed a contract with Random House in November 2016 and delivered the manuscript last February, but after "a lot of back and forth about the publishing date," the title was yanked.

Random House, which is owned by German media behemoth Bertelsmann, said the dispute will be heard in court on Monday.
