From the Back Cover:

This engaging introduction to Islam examines its lived reality, its worldwide presence, and the variety of beliefs and practices encompassed by the religion. Featuring essays from acclaimed scholars that are richly global in approach, the content explores the similarities and diversity of Islam across countries and regions in the present day.

A central theme of this book is the deep contrast that exists between the commonly held images of Islam and the reality of how this religion is lived and practiced. While Islam is often thought of as a static and monolithic tradition, it is in fact fluid, dynamic, and characterized by enormous variety. By examining trends across different countries and regions, including Asia, Africa, Latin America, the Middle East, and Europe, it provides an accurate depiction of Islam in the 21st century. The book also addresses the historical context in which Islam emerged and its core elements, but then moves beyond this to include areas less typically covered, including the geographical diversity of the religion, the phenomenon of militancy, Islamophobia, and the teaching of Islam in the West. This combination of global, historical, and interdisciplinary coverage makes this the ideal text for courses focusing on the political, social and lived reality of Islam today.
