Islam against the West. Shakib Arslan and the Campaign for Islamic Nationalism. By William L. Cleveland. This book gives a unique perspective on the interwar history of the Middle East; by telling the life story of one man, it illuminates the political and cultural struggles of an era. Books shelved as islam-and-the-west: The Great Sea: A Human History of the Mediterranean by David Abulafia, The Last Crusaders: The Hundred-Year Battle f.

Eleven superb essays on the culture clash between the Islamic nations of the Middle East and the more secularized West, from distinguished Orientalist Lewis (Near Eastern Studies/Princeton; Semites and Anti-Semites, , etc.). Scholarly but not pedantic, writing without fear or favor, Lewis makes an ideal guide through the political, religious, and cultural thickets of : Bernard Lewis.   Islam’s gains paralleled by the West’s decline. Unlike Islam, the West has lost faith in its own traditional religious values. Mainstream churches have endured decades of disturbing decline. Attendance is often in near freefall. The teachings of the Bible are impugned, and even God’s existence is seriously questioned in religious quarters. Islam and the West As John indicated, this is a sort of homecoming, and in respect to this particular topic, it is more than that, because five years ago Ljubo and Lisl invited me to give a talk at this conference, while it was still at Lake Bled, on the subject of the Roots of Islamist Ideology.

Because the U.S. News article related only to the Christian west against the Muslim east, except in this paragraph I will not describe the almost 1, years of Muslim imperialistic, colonialist, bloody conquest and subjugation of others through invasion and war to the east of Arabia in Iraq, Persia, and much further eastward, which continues. Islam between east and west is not a book of theology, it deal with dogmas, Islam between east and west is not a book of theology, it deal with dogmas, institutions and teachings of Islam with the aim of establishing the place of Islam in the general spectrum of ideas. Islam and the West. Islam. Islam (Ĭsläm´, Ĭs´läm), [Arab.,=submission to God], world religion founded by the Prophet Muhammad. Founded in the 7th cent., Islam is the youngest of the three monotheistic world religions (with Judaism and Christianity). An adherent to Islam is a Muslim [Arab.,=one who submits].
