Description

Chapter 6, The Study of Islam in an Age of Trump, is based on lectures I gave at the Aga Khan University, the Freie Universität of Berlin, and the University of Frieburg. It provides an autobiographical account as a way to show some of the problems besetting the study of Islam going into the future.
