Islam seems to be constantly at odds with the West. Even before 11 September 2001, Muslims were generally viewed as enemies of Western "freedom" and "Progress". There is far more to Islam than the stereotypical Western view of violence and bigotry, fanaticism and despotism, oil and turmoil. This "No Nonsense Guide" looks at how Islam can reconcile itself with the twenty first century. The authors Merryl Wyn Davies and Ziauddin Sardar explain the Islamic worldview, examining the Qu'ran and Islamic law (sharia), Islam in history, Islam's relationship with the West and its contemporary nature. Merryl Wyn Davies and Ziauddin Sardar analyze the struggle within the faith for a more humane and holistic interpretation of their religion, as well as examining the issues surrounding women, democracy and economic development.
