New Book: Islam in a Post-Secular Society: Religion, Secularity and the Antagonism of Recalcitrant Faith

I am pleased to announce the release of my new book, Islam in a Post-Secular Society: Religion, Secularity and the Antagonism of Recalcitrant Faith, published by Brill (Leiden, Netherlands). This book critically examines the unique challenges facing Muslims in Europe and North America. From the philosophical perspective of the Frankfurt School’s Critical Theory, this book attempts not only to diagnose the current problems stemming from a marginalization of Islam in the secular West, but also to offer a proposal for a Habermasian discourse between the religious and the secular. By highlighting historical examples of Islamic and western rapprochement, and rejecting the clash of civilization thesis, the author attempts to find a common language between the religious and the secular, which can serve as a vehicle for a future reconciliation.

It is available for purchase on Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble.com, and other intelligent bookstores. It can also be found on Brill’s website: http://www.brill.com
