  • Since the events of 9/11 and the subsequent invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq, hardly a day goes by without media coverage of suspected terrorist activities linked to Muslims, and their apparent hatred of the West. Actual outrages involving the deaths of innocent civilians, both Muslim and non-Muslim, in various parts of the world, fuel understandable panic and fear. Reporting of these events is frequently one-sided, and fails to satisfy the intense curiosity about Muslim beliefs and practices, while perpetuating unhelpful stereotypes which contribute to the rising phenomenon of Islamophobia. In Aspects of Islam Ron Geaves seeks to go beyond these stereotypical images, to reveal the full diversity of Islam in the contemporary world. Drawing on detailed fieldwork and knowledge of living Muslim communities, he explores the faith tradition from within, and examines issues that are of concern to todays Muslims.
