The world's fastest-growing religion is also the most misunderstood in the West. In Islam in the Modern World, Seyyed Hossein Nasr, one of the world's leading experts on Islamic thought, explains why traditional Islam exists in tension with modern Western culture, while at the same time it is also opposed by many currents of Islamic "fundamentalism." Islam in the Modern World offers an inside look at this increasingly factious religion with increasing global relevance. Book jacket.
