  • The Place of Tolerance in Islamby Khaled Abou El Fadl

    Beacon Press 2002; US$ 17.00

    Khaled Abou El Fadl, a prominent critic of Islamic puritanism, leads off this lively debate by arguing that Islam is a deeply tolerant religion.

    The Lutterworth Press 2011; US$ 30.00

    In a world where almost all societies are multi-religious and multi-ethnic, we need to study how social cohesion can be achieved in different contexts. In some geographical areas, as in the Middle East and the Indian subcontinent, people of different religious belonging have, through the ages, lived side by side, sometimes in harmony and sometimes... more...

  • Islam and Human Rights in Practiceby Shahram Akbarzadeh; Benjamin MacQueen

    Taylor and Francis 2008; US$ 54.95

    Questions over the compatibility of Islam and Human Rights have become a key area of debate in the perceived tensions between ?Islam and the West?.
