Inhaltsangabe: "This book will work out well for my Modern Islam course. With excellent textbooks such as this one and Professor Esposito's Voices of Resurgent Islam, I hope to be able to offer this course more often."--Alford T. Welch, Michigan State University. This sourcebook of fifty-seven modern Islamic writings show the tensions inherent in the struggle of Muslims to maintain their religious identity in the modern world. Here Muslims speak for themselves, revealing the diversity of Islamic thought.
Rezension: Advance Praise: "Islam in Transition includes a wide range of opinions written by Muslim intellectuals over two centuries, undercutting students' stereotypes of Islam as a monolithic religion. The book is both comprehensive and diverse--chronologically, geographically, and intellectually. Islam inTransition . . . fills a void--although there are many primary source readers instructors can use for courses on Islam and Islamic Civilization, there are not many readers in print for courses on the modern Middle East."--Corrine Blake, Rowan University"The best thing about this book is that it covers a wide range of modern Muslim thinkers and allows them to speak for themselves. I know of no other book like it."--Jamal J. Elias, Amherst College
