Are Muslims Distinctive?: A Look at the Evidence by M. Steven Fish

By M. Steven Fish

Are Muslims Distinctive? represents the 1st significant clinical attempt to evaluate how Muslims and non-Muslims differ--and don't differ--in the modern global. utilizing rigorous tools and knowledge drawn from worldwide, M. Steven Fish unearths that during a few components Muslims and non-Muslims vary lower than is often imagined. Muslims aren't prone to want the fusion of spiritual and political authority or particularly vulnerable to mass political violence. but there are transformations: Gender inequality is extra serious between Muslims, Muslims are surprisingly averse to homosexuality and different debatable behaviors, and democracy is unusual within the Muslim international. different components of divergence undergo the marks of a Muslim virtue: murder charges and class-based inequities are much less serious between Muslims than non-Muslims. Fish's findings have important implications for human welfare, interfaith realizing, and overseas relations.
