Ziauddin Sardar is one of the world's leading public intellectuals. A broadcaster and cultural commentator, he is the author of over 40 books. His co-authored book Why Do People Hate America? was an international bestseller, and his autobiography, Desperately Seeking Paradise received wide acclaim. Since 9/11 he has been an important Muslim voice in mainstream western media. This book is the perfect introduction to his thinking that brings together some of his key writings in one volume. It provides extracts from many of his most acclaimed books, from his early writing right through to his latest thinking. Organised in clear chapters, the extracts are carefully chosen to explore the themes of Islam, science and cultural relations. Drawn from a wide range of sources, this Zia Sardar reader is an accessible introduction to the thinking of one of the leading cultural theorists of our time. "One of the finest intellectuals on the planet." Herald Praise for Why Do People Hate America? "[A] sophisticated and grimly amusing analysis." Houston Chronicle "[A] useful challenge to the common American assumption that foreigners who dislike us are ill-informed, envious or "evil."
Baltimore Sun "Packed with tightly argued points." Times Higher Education Supplement Praise for Desperately Seeking Paradise: "Bounds forth with extraordinary energy and lightness, propelled at all stages by a passion for knowledge and inquiry." New Statesman "At once earnest and humorous, light-hearted and profound, this is a book that displays a sustained capacity for self-questioning of a kind that has few parallels in the liberal West."
