Most Helpful Customer Reviews

3 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Midwest Book Review on November 16, 2009
Format: Paperback
Islam, Fundamentalism and the Betrayal of Tradition appears in a revised, expanded new edition offering essays by Western Muslim scholars on the nature of Islam and its modern applications. New to this edition is an essay on women's roles in Islam, an updated chapter on the true nature of the jihad, and newly revised chapters discussing Islam and world concerns. A 'must' for any spirituality collection considering modern Islamic concepts.
