Life of Moravia by Alberto Moravia( Book )

4 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 290 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

William Weaver, the translator of Life of Moravia, who knew the writer well, points out in his introductory note that from an early age Moravia would dramatize the life around him or the life he imagined beyond the walls of his sanatorium through stories and plays. And so it is fitting that this unusual memoir, the only autobiographical work Moravia left behind, be in the arm of an interview, a conversation with his friend the writer Alain Elkann."--Jacket

To be a Muslim : Islam, peace, and democracy by Hassan bin Talal( Book )

10 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 284 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is a personal statement about the essence of Islam by one of the world's leading advocates of inter-faith dialogue and understanding - Prince El Hassan bin Talal of Jordan. There is much ignorance about Islam in the West, and negative opinions of Islam feed on the ignorance. The views and attitudes about Islam in public dialogue since the Osama bin Laden-inspired terrorist attack on September 11, 2001 require a response that sets Islam in a light that shows its fundamental belief structures and humanity." "The core of the book is a statement of belief in a question and answer format that allows Islam's basic tenets to be quickly grasped by a wide audience. Prince El Hassan's answers are precise and informative. He presents a persuasive argument that the beliefs and culture of the majority of the Islamic world not only are compatible with but are contributive to a world at peace - a world of diversity in which a Muslim and non-Muslim nations can and should collaborate to create a more humane and just global society. He cites the Qur'an, the Hadith (sayings), and the Sunna (tradition) of the Prophet Muhammad, and describes how most of Islam during most of its history has applied the teachings of the Prophet so as to treat other ethnic groups, cultures, and faiths - especially the Jewish and Christian monotheists - with respect, tolerance, and fairness."--Jacket
