$ 16.00 $ 18.99

Legacy of the Prophet is a sweeping, first-person account of the transformation in the style and message of Islamic politics at the beginning of the twenty-first century. As terrorism floods our headlines, this book offers a rare but much-needed counterpoint: it shows that Islamic activists have increasingly renounced violence in order to form political parties, engage in grassroots work, and enter into civil society to bring about peaceful reform in their authoritarian societies. Complete with a new introduction and epilogue, Legacy of the Prophet promises to redefine the debate over the future of political Islam.
