This book discusses various dynamic facets of the life of Rashid al-Ghannushi , a distinguished Islamic thinker and activist not only in Tunisia and North Africa, but in the entire Muslim world. It especially focuses on those aspects related to his intellectual understanding and response to a number of critical contemporary issues. In the 21st Century, Rashid al-Ghannushi is considered as the most moderate among the Muslim thinkers and intellectuals, particularly when it comes to the question of Islam-democracy compatibility and power sharing theory. This book also offers an account of a previously little known, yet much talked about Muslim voice in the post-Arab Spring era. It further shows how the intellectual Muslim thinkers' own perspectives and expectations from Islamic movement(s) and their interaction with the `western oriented local leadership', as well as their (secular) policies color their understanding of Islam and various other major issues.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Dawood's Rashid al-Ghannushi A Key Muslim Thinker of the 21st Century is a perceptive addition to previous works on Ghannouchi; an interesting and thought-provoking work that will prove helpful for everyone, and anyone, interested in knowing the life, works, activities, thought, and `transformations' of Ghannouchi from an `Islamist' activist to a moderate political leader and thinker. Or in a nutshell, it is clear-cut read on the thought, legacy and activities of Ghannouchi from a `Democrat within Islamism' to a `Muslim Democrat'."
