Cambridge University Press/ Yoda Press, 2006. First edition. Hardcover. New. Making a radical departure from the recently proliferating publications on Islam—journalist exposés on terrorist intrigues and solemn expositions on the clash of civilizations - renowned Islamicist Carl Ernst offers in this book a sympathetic yet reasoned and analytical view of the Islamic religious tradition and the contemporary issues that Muslims face. He introduces the reader to the profound spiritual and intellectual resources of Islam while clarifying debate and highlighting diversity within the tradition. Writing from within the framework of religious studies and the historical context he describes how Protestant definitions of religion and anti-Muslim prejudice have affected views of Islam in Europe and America. He also discusses the contemporary importance of Islam in both its traditional settings and its new locations and provides a context for understanding extremist movements like fundamentalism. Ernst concludes with an overview of critical debates on important contemporary issues such as gender and veiling, state politics, and science and religion. Revealing the human face of Islam, this timely and important volume aims at stimulating conversation between Muslims and non-Muslims in a world that they have commonly inherited. Contents Preface 1. Islam in the Eyes of the West 2. Approaching Islam in Terms of Religion 3. The Sacred Sources of Islam 4. Ethics and Life in the World 5. Spirituality in Practice 6. Postscript: Reimagining Islam in the Twenty-first Century Notes Suggested Further Reading Index Printed Pages: 269., Cambridge University Press/ Yoda Press, 2006, PM Press. PAPERBACK. 1604864850 Akbar Ahmed?s Suspended Somewhere Between is a collection of poetry from the man the BBC calls ?the world?s leading authority on contemporary Islam." A mosaic of Ahmed?s life, which has traversed cultural and religious barriers, this book of verse is personal with a vocal range from introspective and reflective to romantic and emotive to historical and political. The poems take the reader from the forbidding valleys and mountains of Waziristan in the tribal areas of Pakistan to the think tanks and halls of power in Washington, DC; from the rustic tranquility of Cambridge to the urban chaos of Karachi. The collection spans half a century of writing and gives the reader a front row seat to the drama of a world in turmoil. Can there be more drama than Ahmed?s first memories as a boy of four on a train through the killing fields of North India during the partition of the subcontinent in 1947? Or the breakup of Pakistan into two counties amidst mass violence in 1971? Yet, in the midst of change and uncertainty, there is the optimism and faith of a man with confidence in his fellow man and in the future, despite the knowledge that perhaps the problems and challenges of the changing world would prove to be too great. Ahmed?s poetry was a constant source of solace and renewal to which he escaped for inspiration and sanity. He loved poetry of every kind whether English, Urdu or Persian. Ahmed was as fascinated by Keats and Coleridge as he was by Rumi and Ghalib. For us, he serves as a guide to the inner recesses of the Muslim world showing us its very heart. Through the poems, the reader gets fresh insights into the Muslim world and its struggles. Above all, they carry the eternal message of hope and compassion. .
