"Now revised and expanded in the wake of the September 11 attacks and the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, this new edition embraces the breadth of global Islam with significant new material on Islam in Africa, Asia, Europe, and the United States, as well as the Middle East. Discussion focuses on family, gender, race, law democracy, and human rights in these Muslim communities. New maps and illustrations detail the diversity and representation of Islam and Muslims worldwide. Ultimately, in stark contrast to typical Western media images, Fluehr-Lobban seeks to clarify the complexity, humanity, and vastness of the Muslim world."--Jacket." ;
