Flap copy

A new foreword, by John E. Woods, offers a reappraisal of Rahman's life and thought after the events of fall 2001. This incisive, surprisingly comprehensive volume is both a history and an analysis of Islam: from Mohammed's time to the late twentieth century, Rahman traces the development of Islam as a religion and as an intellectual tradition, offering both an easily understood introduction to the faith and an impassioned argument for its future direction.show more
