ISLAM IN THE WORLD

'I found it fascinating . . . To have made a thorough examination of intricate and problematic issues and yet to remain completely mindful of the need for understanding of the average lay reader is no mean peformance. I hope, and in fact am confident, that it will satisfy a great need for those among Western English readers who want to understand Islam' Fazlur Rahman, University of Chicago

'An exceptionally insightful and thought-provoking introduction to Islam' explaining its basic religious beliefs, practices and institutions as well as discussing its impact on Muslim life today' John L. Esposito, editor of the Oxford Encyclopedia of the Modern Islamic World

'The best and most sophisticated introduction to Islam as a religion and as a culture that is available in succinct form at the moment. Sympathetic, knowledgeable, and critical. Very well balanced' Nur Yalman, Harvard University

'To our knowledge, no book about Islam of a similar quality has appeared in many years, whether written by a Muslim or a non-Muslim' Muhammad Asad , Qur'an translator and author of The Road to Mecca

'His exposition of the "Quranic world-view" is the most convincing, and the most appealing, that I have read, and his observations about the development and effects of Islamic law are original and thought- provoking' Edward Mortimer, The Times

'An excellent book . . . a first class synthesis of the many-sided story of Islam in history, from its origin to the present day . . . This is a book which will make many previously mysterious subjects a good deal clearer to the general reader who seeks to come to terms with Islam in the modern world' R. C. Ostle, Journal of Theological Studies
