From the Back Cover:

The world’s fastest-growing religion is also the most misunderstood in the West. In Islam in the Modern World, Seyyed Hossein Nasr, one of the world’s leading experts on Islamic thought, explains why traditional Islam exists in tension with modern Western culture, while at the same time it is also opposed by many currents of Islamic “fundamentalism.” Islam in the Modern World offers an inside look at this increasingly factious religion with increasing global relevance.

About the Author:

Seyyed Hossein Nasr is university professor of Islamic Studies at George Washington University. Author of over fifty books, Professor Nasr is a well-known and highly respected intellectual figure both in the West and in the Islamic world. Born in Tehran, raised from the age of twelve in the United States, and a graduate of MIT and Harvard University, Nasr is well qualified to explain Islam to a Western audience. He appears frequently on Meet the Press, as well as other national news shows.
