Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
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 in Transition . . . 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
