Editorial Reviews

Review

"Since 9/11, we have frequently heard the question, 'Where are all the moderate Muslims?' This book goes a long way toward answering that question...with a rich and complex debate on what constitutes moderate Islam, the influences moderates wield in Muslim societies around the world, and how non-Muslims can best engage them in their joint effort to combat Islamic radicalism. It offers insight and reasoned commentary on a topic where we too often find apologetics on the one hand or reductionism on the other." —Sohail Hashmi, associate professor of international relations, Mount Holyoke College 


"The role Islam will play in the twenty-first century, the predicament of U.S.-Muslim world relations, the status and concerns of Muslim minorities in the West, the questions of Islam, Islamists, and democracy...are some of the most important and vexing political, social, and religious problems of our time. Muqtedar Khan is one of the brightest thinkers and most eloquent voices in the American Muslim community on these issues and he has assembled a veritable 'Who's Who' of scholars, thinkers, and leaders to wrestle these complex and important questions."
—Peter W. Singer, senior fellow and director, 21st Century Defense Initiative, The Brookings Institution 


 "This book is important and interesting. It succeeds...by showing the range of opinions among scholars, policy analysis, and practitioners of Islam."
—Karen I. Leonard, professor of anthropology, UC Irvine
