A range of modern Islamic movements and intellectuals has sought to reclaim certain concepts, ideas, persons, and trends from the Islamic tradition.
This book profiles some of the fundamental debates that have defined the conversation between the past and the present in the Islamic world.
Qur'anic exegesis, Islamic law, gender, violence, and eschatology are just some of the key themes in this study of the Islamic tradition's vitality in the modern Islamic world.
This book will allow readers to situate modern developments in the Islamic world within the longue dur e of Islamic history and thought.
