Adopting traditional dress to gain access to a range of Islamic leaders normally off limits to westerners, Joyce Davis sheds new light on our view of the Islamic world. In over a dozen interviews with the hidden elite of the Muslim world, Davis reveals extremes in opinion. Includes the Sudan's Hassan al Turabi, often described as the new Ayatollah; Muntassir al Zayat, spokesman for Al Gamaa and al Jihad, responsible for much of the violence in Egypt; and Abida Hussain, Pakistan's former ambassador to the US who allows her daughter to date. What becomes clear from these profiles is that some of the people who once provoked fear are worthy of trust, while others, undeniably, are not. A revealing collection of interviews that unveil the thoughts and personalities of Muslim thinkers and leaders, Profiles in Islam is guaranteed to enlighten.
