Interpreting Islam

Edited by:

© 2002 | 208 pages | SAGE Vistaar
Interpreting Islam documents the diversity and richness of contemporary knowledge about Islam and Muslim society. To help readers make sense of Islam, the contributors examine the range of disciplinary approaches involved in its study. They focus not only on what these approaches have emphasised, but also on what they have left out, and on their varied responses to the challenge of representing 'other' cultures.
