Duke University
Bruce B. Lawrence is Professor of Islamic Studies Emeritus at Duke University. A specialist in Indo-Persian culture and the comparative study of religious movements, he has authored, co-authored, edited, and co-edited sixteen books. They include translations, monographs and trade books, the most recent being The Qur’an: A Biography (2006) and, with Aisha Karim, On Violence: A Reader (2007).

Description

A short introduction to legacy of the late Marilyn Waldman who died in July 1996 and whom Lawrence characterizes as having used 'her special knowledge of Islam to attack general knowledge of Islam, but even more to undercut taken-for-granted conceptions of prophecy that exclude or reduce or misshape Islamic evidence.'
