Although he is a product of Islamic culture, Mohammed Arkoun nonetheless disagrees with the Islamic establishment and militant Islamist groups. A student of twentieth-century social science in the West and an admirer of liberalism, he self-consciously distances himself from Western Orientalists and Western conceptions of liberalism. This book--the first of Arkoun's works to be widely available in English--presents his answers to twenty-four deceptively simple questions about Islam. Taken together, the author's responses provide an introduction to one of the world's great religions and offers a biting, radical critique of Islamology as it has been practiced in both East and West.
