Tensions and Transitions in the Muslim World provides an alternative reading of Middle Eastern politics and political culture by focusing on the dynamics of change, and examining the role of Islam in the emerging modern Middle East. Louay Safi contends that by focusing on radical and traditionalist Islam, Middle East specialists often overlook the liberal manifestations of Islam, which, though marginalized, constitute the driving force in the sociopolitical development of the Middle East.

MEDIA REVIEWS
.... it nevertheless is a valuable contribution to contemporary debates over Islamic reform in general and political Islam in particular. Safi's attempts to overcome the dichotomous and polarized notions of what an Islamic political program entails by concentrating on the rich experiences and intellectual traditions of Islamic reformism that are conducive to formulating and articulating a pluralistic and democratic politics is particularly useful to the reader. -- Samer Abboud, Ph.D. Candidate, Middle East Studies Institue of Arab and Islamic Studies, University of Exeter, United Kingdom * American Journal of Islamic Social Studies *
[T]his book provides a lucid and well-articulated case for situating perceived tensions between the Islamic world and the 'West' in perspective. In this respect, this commendable and sincere effort conveys an important point of view that deserves as much exposure as possible. -- Amr G. E. Sabet, visiting scholar, Vaasa University, Vaasa, Finland * American Journal of Islamic Social Studies *
