Review quote

"'with intimate knowledge of both Islam and the West, and his unflinching honesty... Mr Allawi calmly and methodically deconstructs an Islamic revival which has failed to live up to its promises.' The Economist 'a challenging and ambitious effort... thoughtful, pertinent and informative... I have no hesitation in recommending The Crisis of Islamic Civilisation to others, Muslims and non-Muslims alike.' Muhammad Khan, Muslim News 'This is an intelligent, erudite work on the travails of Islamic civilisation as it has encountered the expansion of Western power... Allawi's work is a searing indictment of Islamic societies but not of Islam itself... his expositions of the ideas of Muslim thinkers are exemplary in their lucidity... I learnt a lot from this book.' Literary Review"
