Editorial Reviews

Review

"Crescent and Dove, a groundbreaking book edited by Qamar-ul Huda, is a ‘must read’ for policymakers, scholars, and students of international affairs in a world that too often fails to distinguish between the acts of a tiny minority of extremists and the religion of Islam."
(John Esposito, Georgetown University)

About the Author

Qamar-ul Huda is a senior program officer in the Religion and Peacemaking Program and a scholar of Islam at United States Institute of Peace. His area of expertise is Islamic theology, comparative ethics, the language of violence, interfaith studies, conflict resolution and nonviolence in contemporary Islam. He is an adjunct faculty member of Georgetown University’s Conflict Resolution Program and has taught at Boston College, Brandeis University, and the College of Holy Cross.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book was so exactly what my discussion group was looking for: complicated enough to maintain the interest of a Ph.D. student, but accessible enough for those of us without an advanced degree. Great and difficult conversation starters from the essays in this book. Genuinely new perspectives also.
