Being a Muslim in the World, by Hamid Dabashi
Hamid Dabashi, Being a Muslim in the World, New York, Palgrave Macmillan, 2013.
What does it mean to be a Muslim – in this world, in this deeply transformative time? Hamid Dabashi suggests that the transition to a changed, post-Western world requires the crafting of a new language of critical conversation with Islam and its cosmopolitan heritage – a language that is tuned to the emerging, not the disappearing, world.
Hamid Dabashi is the Hagop Kevorkian Professor of Iranian Studies and Comparative Literature at Columbia University in New York.
