Summary
"Originally written in the wake of the Gulf War, Islamic Societies in Practice introduced the West to Arab-Islamic cultures and societies. It ventured behind the headlines to offer a positive, constructive view of Islam and Muslims, showing how Islam is lived and practiced in daily life." "Now revised and expanded in the wake of the September 11 attacks and the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, this new edition embraces the breadth of global Islam with significant new material on Islam in Africa, Asia, Europe, and the United States, as well as the Middle East. Discussion focuses on family, gender, race, law democracy, and human rights in these Muslim communities. New maps and illustrations detail the diversity and representation of Islam and Muslims worldwide. Ultimately, in stark contrast to typical Western media images, Fluehr-Lobban seeks to clarify the complexity, humanity, and vastness of the Muslim world."--Jacket
