for the next couple of days so expect light posting. I will be reading what looks like a great book- Heavy_Metal_Islam: Rock, Resistance, and the Struggle for the Soul of Islam. Here’s a good interview with the author. Expect my review once I’m done reading.
Also, check out this good review of Gilles Kepel’s new book by the Economist’s Max Rodenback. Finally, Jack Shenker has a good piece in The Guardian analyzing the Sheikh of Al-Azhar’s controversial handshake with Shimon Peres.
