  • Ibn 'Arabiby William C. Chittick

    Oneworld Publications 2012; US$ 19.99

    The importance of Muhyi al-Din Ibn al-Arabi (1165-1240) for Islamic mysticism lies in the fact that he was a speculative thinker of the highest order, albeit diffuse and difficult to understand. His central doctrine is the unity of all existence. In this text, William Chittick explores how, through the work of Ibn Al-Arabi, Sufism moves away from... more...

  • Mu'awiya ibn abi Sufyanby R. Stephen Humphreys

    In this accessible study, Stephen Humphreys introduces the most elusive of the early caliphs, Mu'awiya ibn abi Sufyan (602-680).

  • Nazira Zeineddineby Miriam Cooke

    Oneworld Publications 2012; US$ 40.00

    In 1928, a young Lebanese woman, Nazira Zeineddine al-Halabi, wrote a book called "Unveiling and Veiling", an indictment of patriarchal oppression in which she boldly stated that the veil was un-Islamic, directly challenging the teachings of “wiser" male scholars. Considered by many an attack on Islam, it rocked the Muslim world and was banned by... more...

  • Feminism in Islamby Margot Badran

    Oneworld Publications 2013; US$ 29.95

    While many in the West regard feminism and Islam as a contradiction in terms, many Muslims in the East have perceived Western feminist forces in their midst as an assault upon their culture. In this career-spanning collection of influential essays, Margot Badran presents the feminisms that Muslim women have created, and examines Islamic and secular... more...

  • Homosexuality in Islamby Scott Siraj al-Haqq Kugle

    Oneworld Publications 2010; US$ 29.95

    Homosexuality is anathema to Islam – or so the majority of both believers and non-believers suppose. Throughout the Muslim world, it is met with hostility, where state punishments range from hefty fines to the death penalty. Likewise, numerous scholars and commentators maintain that the Qur?an and Hadith rule unambiguously against same-sex relations.... more...

  • Sa‘diby Homa Katouzian

    One of greatest Persian writers of both classical prose and poetry, Sa'di was revered in his time as a man of great wisdom and passion. Filled with extracts of the poet's melodious and insightful writing, and critical analysis thereof, this revealing biography examines why he was so idolized until the 1950s, and why since then he has fallen into relative... more...

  • The Oxford Handbook of American Islamby Yvonne Y. Haddad; Jane I. Smith

    Oxford University Press 2014; US$ 149.99

  • Recalling the Caliphate: Decolonisation and World Orderby S. Sayyid

    Hurst 2014; US$ 18.99

    As late as the last quarter of the twentieth century, there were expectations that Islam's political and cultural influence would dissipate as the advance of westernization brought modernization and secularization in its wake. Not only has Islam failed to follow the trajectory pursued by variants of Christianity, namely confinement to the private... more...
