The 9/11 attacks shattered the image of Islam as a wholly peaceful faith, raising the possibility that this seemingly new struggle between East and West is just the latest variant of a much older contest between Islam and the non-Islamic world. In Relections on Islam, award-winning author George Jonas addresses a range of questions about Islam: Is there a difference between Islam and Islamism? Was it a mistake to invade Iraq or simply a mistake to stay? These provocative, elegant essays showcase Jonas at his best on a topic of enormous importance.
