Islam in Asia

Religion, Politics, and Society

Edited by John L. Esposito

More than half of the world's 800 million Muslims live in Asia, and yet most people continue to think of Islam as an Arab phenomenon. This wide-ranging volume brings together previously unpublished writings by leading authorities on Islamic affairs, providing the fullest picture of the diverse roles played by Islam in Asian public life and the ways in which Islam influences both the domestic politics and foreign policies of Muslim countries today.
