Summary
""Another must-read by one of the most thought-provoking writers on Islam and the Middle East. At once a brilliant history lesson and a fascinating thought experiment, A World Without Islam is sure to challenge the simplistic view held by so many in the West that Islam is the source of the conflicts we are witnessing in the Middle East."---Reza Aselan, Author of No God Bgt God and Beyond Egndamentalism" ""A must-read. Graham Fuller's A World Without Islam is a tour de force by one of the foremost authorities on global Muslim politics. Fuller's masterful study provides an insightful and at times provocative analysis of the character of Muslim-West relations from the rise of Islam, addressing major issues from the clash of civilizations and the roots of terrorism to the significance of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict and U.S. foreign policy."---John L. Esposito, Professor of Religion and International Affairs, Georgetown University, and Author of the Future of Islam and Who Speaks for Islam?" ""A cogent argument demonstrating that a knowledgeable awareness of the rich dynamics that drive societies will better help diffuse tensions."---Kirkus Reviews" "In A World Without Islam, Graham E. Fuller, a professor and former vice chairman of the National Intelligence Council at the CIA, guides us on an illuminating journey through history, geopolitics, and religion to investigate whether there is something unique in Islam that breeds violence and conflict. Taking us from the rise of Muhammad to the collapse of the Ottoman Empire to the present day, Fuller analyzes the roots of terrorism, the conflicts in Israel and Chechnya, and the role of Islam in supporting and energizing the anti-imperial struggle." "Filled with fascinating details and counterintuitive conclusions, A World Without Islam is essential reading for anyone who cares about the future of the Middle East. It is certain to inspire debate and reshape the way we think about America's relationship with the Muslim world" ""After September 11, 2001, the discussion around Islam has often been shrill and usually sterile. That is why Graham Fuller's measured, scholarly, and eminently sensible voice needs to be heard."---Akbar S. Ahmed, IBN Khaldun Chair of Islamic Studies, American University, Washington, D.C., And Author of Islam Today: A Short Introduction To the Muslim World"--BOOK JACKET
