    I.B.Tauris 2013; US$ 45.00

    The debate over Islam and modernity tends to be approached from a Eurocentric perspective that presents Western norms as a template for progress - against which Islamic societies can be measured. This misses the historical development of Muslim reformist thought that actively engages with the world around it and seeks to reconfigure Islam within the... more...

    Palgrave Macmillan 2013; US$ 105.00

Exploring the changing theological... more...

    Taylor and Francis 2012; US$ 190.00

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2011; US$ 134.95

  • The Analects of Confuciusby Roger T. Ames

    Random House Publishing Group 2010; US$ 15.00

Now, here is a translation... more...
