In 2005, when No god but God was first published, Reza Aslan predicted that al-Qaeda would be a fast diminishing movement, that the massive youth bulge in the Arab world would transform the region, and that a democratic revolution would soon sweep across the Middle East.
Ten years after 9/11, the revised and updated version of Aslan's internationally acclaimed bestseller addresses the events of the past decade, analyzing how they have influenced Islam’s position in modern culture. Aslan explores what the popular demonstrations pushing for democracy in the Middle East mean for the future of Islam in the region, how the Internet and social media have affected Islam’s evolution, and how the war on terror has altered the geopolitical balance of power in the Middle East. Timely and persuasive, NO GOD BUT GOD is an elegantly written account that explains this magnificent yet misunderstood faith.
