Description

  • Great product!
  • A fascinating, accessible introduction to Islam from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Zealot and host of the
    CNN’s Believer

    FINALIST FOR THE GUARDIAN FIRST BOOK AWARD

    In No god but God, internationally acclaimed scholar Reza Aslan explains Islam—the origins and evolution of the faith—in
    all its beauty and complexity. This updated edition addresses the events of the past decade, analyzing how they have
    influenced Islam’s position in modern culture. Aslan explores what the popular demonstrations pushing for democracy in
    the Middle East mean for the future of Islam in the region, how the Internet and social media have affected Islam’s
    evolution, and how the war on terror has altered the geopolitical balance of power in the Middle East. He also provides
    an update on the contemporary Muslim women’s movement, a discussion of the controversy over veiling in Europe, an
    in-depth history of Jihadism, and a look at how Muslims living in North America and Europe are changing the face of
    Islam. Timely and persuasive, No god but God is an elegantly written account that explains this magnificent yet
    misunderstood faith.

    Praise for No god but God

    “[Reza] Aslan offers an invaluable introduction to the forces that have shaped Islam [in this] eloquent, erudite paean
    to Islam in all of its complicated glory.”—Los Angeles Times Book Review

    “Wise and passionate . . . an incisive, scholarly primer in Muslim history and an engaging personal exploration.”—The
    New York Times Book Review

    “Acutely perceptive . . . For many troubled Muslims, this book will feel like a revelation, an opening up of knowledge
    too long buried.”—The Independent (U.K.)

    “Thoroughly engaging and excellently written . . . While [Aslan] might claim to be a mere scholar of the Islamic
    Reformation, he is also one of its most articulate advocates.”—The Oregonian
