**Description from the publisher**
The Empire & the Crescent invites readers to examine the role of the United States in world politics, and draws their attention to the dangers that open-ended and unchecked American power can cause to the world and ultimately, to itself.
With contributions from Hamza Yusuf, William Blum, Zaid Shakir, Edward Sherman, Barbara Metcalf, Abdal Hakim Murad and other eminent scholars and experts, this anthology offers a timely and authoritative perspective on the question of relations between the West and Islamic societies.
".. a very useful look at key issues facing all of us today."
--Barry Lando, former producer CBS 60 Minutes
