'Legacy of the Prophet' is a sweeping, first-person account of the transformation in the style and message of Islamic politics at the beginning of the twenty-first century. As terrorists floods our headlines, this book offers a rare but much-needed counterpoint - it shows that Islamic activists have increasingly renounced violence in order to form political parties, engage in grassroots work, and enter into civil society to bring about peaceful reform in their authoritarian societies. Drawing on his years of reporting in more than a dozen countries of the Muslim world, Anthony Shadid charts the way in which the adolescence of yesterday's Islamic militants is yielding to the maturity of today's activists. Though personal interviews and extensive travel, he chronicles that new generation, which is finding a more realistic and potentially more successful future through democratic politics. Complete with a new introduction and epilogue, 'Legacy of the Prophet' promises to redefine the debate over the future of political Islam.
