Book Name: Islam, Orientalism and Intellectual History
Writer: Mohammad R. Salama
As the events and aftermath of 9/11 have shown, the relationship between Islam and the West is deeply troubled. but
Here Mohammad Salama calls for a new understanding of Islam as a historical condition that has existed in
relationship to the West since the seventh century. Salama compares the Arab-Islamic and
European traditions of historical but thought since the early modern period,
focusing on the watershed moments that informed their ideas of intellectual
history and perceptions of one another.
Islam, Salama argues, has played but a major role in enabling and positioning
Western historiography at key points,
leaving palpable imprints on Islamic historiography in the process.
Focusing on Ibn Khaldun, the complexities of orientalism and modernity,
and recent European as well as Arab writings on such themes,
this book is essential for all those interested in Islamic and Middle Eastern studies,
Western and Islamic philosophies of history, questions of modernity, colonial Egypt,
as well as the postcolonial conditions of the Arab world
