About the book

The Muslim world has often been accused of a failure to modernise, reform and adapt.But, from the beginning of the nineteenth century to the present day, Islamic society in itsMiddle Eastern heartlands has in fact been transformed by modern ideals and practices,including the adoption of modern medicine, the emergence of women from purdah andthe development of democracy.Who were the scholars and scientists, writers and politicians that brought about theseremarkable changes? And why is their legacy now under threat?Beginning with the dramatic collision of East and West following Napoleon's arrival inEgypt, and taking us through 200 tumultuous years of Middle Eastern history, C hristopherde Bellaigue, introduces us to key figures and reformers; from Egypt's visionary rulerMuhammad Ali to brave radicals like Iran's first feminist Qurrat al-Ayn and the writerIbrahim Sinasi, who transformed Ottoman Turkey's language and literature.This book tells the forgotten story of the Islamic Enlightenment. It shows us how to lookbeyond sensationalist headlines to foster a genuine understanding of modern Islam andMuslim culture, and is essential reading for anyone engaged with the state of the worldtoday.
