Daryush Shayegan (au); John Howe (tr). This book is a major contribution to what is perhaps the most critical debate within the Muslim world today: the relationship between its own culture & the influence of Western modernity. Based on examples ranging from Iran to Morocco, Shayegan portrays a society he defines as peripheral -- bound by a slavish adherence to its own glorified history, its ‘Tradition’, yet facing an external reality that derives from the West. The meeting of these two incompatible worlds leads to a profound distortion, not only in how the Muslim world sees the West but, more importantly, in how it sees itself. He draws on a vast range of cultural experiences (from China & Japan to India & Latin America) in analyzing the type of mentality that is chained to his history.
