It is a very good book for Non-Muslims ... it gives them a wide variety of different opinions by totally different Muslims thinkers in one book. You will realize the degree of pluralism in Islamic thought.

An extremely academic book but excellent. I was tired of understanding Islam and the Arab world through the media and took classes throughout college to learn more. This book is a collection of original writings by seminal thinkers of the modern muslim world from Sayyid Qutb, al-Afghani, to Hamas and the Khomeini. If you want to comprehend the present, you must first learn from the past.

Glad there is something like this in print, definitely shows the diversity of Muslim intellectuals/reformers (both good/bad) on various topics. Every Western Muslim that doesn't have access to the original text should own this.
