9/11 and continued acts of global terrorism from Madrid to Bali have challenged the understanding of academic experts, students, and policymakers, Muslims and non-Muslims alike. Critical questions have been raised about Islam and Muslim politics in the modern world: Are Islam and modernity compatible?; Is Islam compatible with modernization: with nationalism, secularism, economic development and democracy?; Is Islam in need of and capable of reform?; what does Islam and what do Muslims have to say about globalization, democracy, human rights, women, jihad, violence, terrorism, and suicide bombing. This updated and expanded second edition of Islam in Transition: Muslim Perspectives includes more than 50% new materials with representative selections from diverse Muslim voices, moderates and extremists, traditionalists and reformers, from the Middle East to Southeast Asia, Europe to America.

Review quote

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
