Islam and Contemporary Civilisation examines the most complex debates and dilemmas facing Islam today, both internally and in its relations with Western civilisation.
Halim Rane provides a concise and comprehensive introduction to Islam and modern developments in Muslim thought, and tackles questions of Islamic law, human rights, democracy, jihad and the Israel-Palestine conflict in the context of Islam-West relations.
In confronting these challenging issues, Rane proposes a way forward that has far-reaching implications for advancing mutual understanding and finding common ground between the Muslim world and the West.
