Islam, Fundamentalism, and the Betrayal of Tradition, Revised and Expanded: Essays by Western Muslim (New)
by Lumbard, Joseph E B (ed)
Publisher: World Wisdom Books
Book ID: 9781933316666, 1933316667
Usually available in 3-5 days
Seven years after the horrific attacks of September 11th, misunderstanding and distrust between Islam and the West are still as rampant as ever. In this new and fully revised edition of his critically acclaimed book, Joseph Lumbard collects a series of essays that explain not only the veil of misconceptions which lie at the heart of Western attitudes towards Islam, but also the rise of “fundamentalism” within Islam itself, a phenomenon which most Muslims do not consider a true reflection of their religion. This new edition includes the addition of an essay on the role of women in Islam, an updated chapter containing insight into the concept of Jihad, and three fully revised chapters that bring the discussion up-to-date with the current global situation. A completely modified introduction is also featured. This book is an invaluable tool for anyone who wants to see beyond the headlines of hatred and anger which are so common today.

Written in an unknown script by an unknown author, the manuscript has no clearer purpose now than when it was rediscovered in 1912 by rare books dealer Wilfrid Voynich. The manuscript appears and disappears throughout history, from the library of the Holy Roman Emperor Rudolf II to a secret sale of books in 1903 by the Society of Jesus in Rome. The book s language has eluded deciphe...More
