Islam: A Very Short Introduction

Islam: A Very Short Introduction
Using Western categories that may be alien to Muslim perceptions, it could be said that Islam is both a religious faith and a political ideology, and it is also, in some contexts a mark of personal and group identity. These three definitions neither exclue nor include each other.

Malise Ruthven's Very Short Introduction contains essential insights into issues such as why Islam has such major divisions between movements such as the Shi'ites, the Sunnis, and the Wahhabis, and the central importance of the Shar'ia (Islamic law) in Islamic life. It also offers fresh perspectives on contemporary questions, such as why the greatest 'Jihad' (holy war) is now against the enemies of Islam, rather than the struggle against evil; whether women can find fulfilment in Islamic societies; and ways in which Islam must adapt as it confronts the modern world.
