1 Review
Perceptions that Islam and the Western world have of one another, and moreover, of themselves at times of conflict with the other, are covered here in twenty well-written articles. Justifications for confrontation are examined as well as the assimilation of Muslims in Western society and the anti-Muslim immigrant backlash occurring in some parts of Europe. This collection of analytical writings contains primary source essays from Muslim intellectuals and holy men, as well as the perspective of Bernard Lewis, an expert on the subject of Islam.
