About this product
- DescriptionWhy has the West developed and modernized, while the Muslim world has lagged behind? Why has democracy t found a hospitable home in much of the Muslim world? And why have the opponents of invation found their message so resonant with ordinary Muslims? Featuring essays by a multidisciplinary group of leading scholars, this volume offers in-depth analyses of the history, causes, consequences, and obstacles to invation in Islam. Focusing on the ways and means through which the teachings of Islam have been produced and perpetuated over time, the contributors investigate such areas as the arts and letters, jurisprudence, personal status, hermeneutics and epistemology, and Muslims' perceptions of the self in the modern world. Invation in Islam illuminates a debate that extends beyond semantics into everyday politics and society -and one that has ramifications around the world. Contributors: Nasr Abu-Zayd, Adonis, Mohammed Arkoun, Walter Denny, Nelly Hanna, Sherman Jackson, Patrick Laude, Ziba Mir-Hosseini, Tariq Ramadan, and John Voll.
