The Legacy Of Arab Islam In Africa from the Author: John Alembillah Azumah. Thoughtful and challenging, this book argues for a reassessment of the roleistorically played by Islam in Africa, and offers new hope for in creasedutual understanding between African people of different faiths.;Drawing on aealth of sources, from the colonial period to the most up-to-datecholarship, the author challenges the widely held perception th at, whilehristianity oppressed and subjugated the African people, Islam fittedomfortably into the indigenous landscape. Instead, this penetrating accounteveals Muslim settlers to be as guilty of enforcing slavery and conversions those of their more maligned sister tradition. Only with ancknowledgement of the true roles of both faiths in African history, suggestszumah, can the people of both traditions move themselves and their continentowards a new future of tolerance and self-awareness.

Reformist Voices Of Islam Mediating Islam And Modernity from the Author: Shireen Hunter. In recent years, Islamic fundamentalist, revolutionary, and jihadist movements have overshadowed more moderate and reformist voices and trends within Islam. This compelling volume introduces the current generation of reformist thinkers and activists, the intellectual traditions they carry on, and the reasons for the failure of reformist movements to sustain broad support in the Islamic world today. Richly detailed regionally focused chapters cover Iran, the Arab East, the Maghreb, South Asia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Turkey, Europe, and North America. The editor's introductory chapter traces the roots of reformist thinking both in Islamic tradition and as a response to the challenge of modernity for Muslims struggling to reconcile the requirements of modernization with their cultural and religious values. The concluding chapter identifies commonalities, comparisons, and trends in the modernizing movements.
