The Future of Islam and the West:  Crisis & Cooperation with Scholar of Islam John L. Esposito

Understanding Islam and Muslim politics, which are going through a major period of change and transition, is critical as we face the challenges of the coming century.  John Esposito, whose most recent books are The Future of Islam and Islamophobia and the Challenge of Pluralism in the 21st Century, will explore the major questions and issues that face Islam and Muslim/West relations.  Who are the reformers in Islam and what are the issues they address? What are issues that have affected and will affect future relations between the West and the Muslim world? How significant is the pro-democracy movement in the Arab world? How representative and widespread is religious extremism and the threat of global terrorism?
