Islam: A Threat to Other Civilizations?

Mohammed Yunus (Author)
Synopsis While teaching at the University of Calgary, Dr. Mohammed Yunus felt the need for a book that would explain the historical personality of Islam and contribute to a better understanding of its resurgence after the end of the colonial era and the emergence of scores of Islamic countries. Having served as a diplomat for three decades, Dr. Yunus apprehended the development of a clash between the newly independent Islamic countries and other states that would be inimical to international harmony and peace due, at least partly, to the lack of mutual comprehension because the clash of political interest breeds suspicion and hostility, and ignorance makes it worse. This book is an attempt to encourage a better understanding of Islam and its role in today's world. Now that the worst fears about the clash of Islam with other civilizations have proven to be well-founded, this book asks whether Islam is a danger to other civilizations and attempts to find an answer to the important question. It is for the readers to discover the relevance of the book to the ongoing clash of civilizations with which the twenty-first century has begun.
