Progressive Muslims: on justice, gender and pluralism
A probing, frank, and intellectually refreshing testament to the capacity of Islam for renewal, change, and growth, these articles from fifteen Muslim scholars and activists address the challenging and complex issues that confront Muslims today. Avoiding fundamentalist and apologetic approaches, the book concentrates on the key areas of debate in progressive Islamic thought. With further contributions on subjects as diverse and controversial as the alienation of Muslim youth; Islamic law, marriage, and feminism; and the role of democracy in Islam, this volume will prove thought-provoking for all those interested in the challenges of justice and pluralism facing the Muslim world as it confronts the twenty-first century.

A Who's who of Progressive Muslim scholars, primarily teaching at institutions in North America and South Africa (one Malaysian, one person at American University of Beirut). No European Muslims are represented in this volume. Each scholar wrote a short essay, and years later these essays have been turned into book(s). Gives you a nice preview of what the authors will later expand. The essay quality varies, but in general, they are quite good and easily accessible to the average university undergraduate. Many of these academics are no longer at the institutions listed in the introduction, but a quick Google search should locate them easily. Progressive Muslim scholars in this book include Kecia Ali, Khaled Abou El Fadl, Farid Esak, Marcia Hermansen, Amir Hussain, Ahmet K. Karamustafa, Tazim R. Kassam, Scott Kugle, Ebrahim Moosa, Ahmad S. Moussalli, Farish Ahmad-Noor, Omid Saifi, Sa'diyya Shaikh, Gwendolyn Zoharah Simmons, and Amina Wadud.
