Book Review

East v. West    
November 02, 2010
In Graham Fuller's new book "A World without Islam" the author presents a provocative theory that a "clash of civilizations" would be present today even if Islam did not exist; the Eastern Orthodox church would simply replace Islam as West's adversary. PI Online tests the author's theory through an analysis of the role of the Eastern Churches in the Middle East and their interaction with Islam and the West.
PI 401- The Varied Interpretations of "Jihad" [BOOK REVIEW]    
March 17, 2008
A new book by Maher Al-Sharif takes a rare look at the evolutionary concept of Jihad in Islamic thoughts. In doing so, the author examines three important issues: should Islam only be spread peacefully or violently if necessary; should people be allowed to choose their own religion without recrimination; and should God be the sole judge of religious conduct.
