Summary
"In his new book, In the Shadow of the Prophet, journalist Milton Viorst takes us behind the scenes of Middle Eastern politics to illuminate the complex struggle throughout the region to reconcile the Muslim community's fierce determination to live by traditional Islamic law and beliefs with the desire for economic and political power in today's world." "Based on in-depth interviews with scores of key Islamic leaders and thinkers, In the Shadow of the Prophet explores the theological straitjacket in which traditional Islam has placed the region - and what the struggle for the direction of Islam means to the West."--Jacket
