Enduring Values for Humanity
Seyyed Hossein Nasr
In this book one of the world’s leading Islamicists and foremost Muslim expert on the West offers a timely expression of core spiritual and social values of Islam, showing their complementarity to Jewish and Christian values as well as their positive contribution to a peaceful and humane global future. As Huston Smith writes:
Authored by the man who has influenced my thinking more than anyone else alive, this is exactly the right book—not to justify the tragic events of 9-11, but to counter the demonizing stereotypes of Islam that have proliferated with the war on terrorism. . . . Nasr is exactly the right man to author such a book, for I know of no one else who is as solidly grounded in both authentic Islam and the complexities of the contemporary Western mind.
