."..feels like a revelation...a raw nerve ending for the West - shocking, raw, but mercifully, joyously, still alive."- Andrew Sullivan, "New York Times Book Review", 1/25/2004 "Irshad Manji is a fresh, new and intriguing voice of Islamic reform. This wonderfully written book will surprise you, educate you, even entertain you."- Alan Dershowitz, author of "The Case for Israel" "[Manji's] ideas have already set off a searching debate."-Clifford Krauss, "The New York Times" "Tightly reasoned and packed with knockout punches."-Pat Donnelly, "Montreal Gazette" "Manji is blazingly articulate."-Margaret Wente, "The Globe" and "Mail" (Canada) ""The Trouble with Islam" is beyond controversial. It may ignite a firestorm of protest...her easy conversational style, addressed to 'my fellow Muslims, ' makes it accessible to a wide range of readers."-Leslie Scrivener, "The Toronto Star"Reseña del editor:
Irshad Manji calls herself a Muslim refusenik. "That doesn't mean I refuse to be a Muslim", she writes, "it simply means I refuse to join an army of automatons in the name of Allah". These automatons, Manji argues, include many so-called moderate Muslims in the West. In blunt, provocative and deeply personal terms, she unearths the troubling cornerstones of Islam as it is widely practised: tribal insularity, deep-seated anti-Semitism and an uncritical acceptance of the Koran as the final, and therefore superior, manifesto of God. In this open letter to Muslims and non-Muslims alike, Manji breaks the conspicuous silence that surrounds mainstream Islam with a series of pointed questions: "Why are we all being held hostage by what's happening between the Palestinians and the Israelis? Who is the real coloniser of Muslims - America or Arabia? How can we read the Koran literally when it's so contradictory and ambiguous? Why are we squandering the talents of women, fully half of God's creation?" Not one to be satisfied with merely criticising, Manji offers a practical vision of how Islam can undergo a reformation that empowers women, promotes respect for religious minorities and fosters a competition of ideas. Her vision revives Islam's lost tradition of independent thought. This book should inspire Muslims worldwide to revisit the foundations of their faith. It might also compel non-Muslims to start posing the questions we all have about Islam today. In that spirit, "The Trouble with Islam" is a clarion call for a fatwa-free future.
