We are advised that Western/Christian and Muslim/Arab civilizations are at the verge of destroying one another. The demographics of 1 team stay slow, whereas the inhabitants of the opposite has exploded, widening the cultural hole and all yet making certain the outbreak of struggle. Leaving apart the media's sound and fury in this topic, measured research exhibits one other fact taking form: rapprochement among those civilizations, benefitting from a common flow guiding humanity because the Enlightenment.

This book's historic and geographical sweep discredits the idea of a particular Islamic demography. the diversity of fertility between Muslim girls, for instance, is as various because the non secular habit between Muslims commonly. even if agnostics, fundamentalist Salafis, or al-Qaeda activists, Muslims are a various crew that proves the immutability and individuality of Islam. Youssef Courbage and Emmanuel Todd ponder assorted levels of literacy, patriarchy, and shielding reactions between minority Muslim teams the world over, underscoring the big secularization stream spreading all through Arab and Muslim populations. during this regard, they argue, there's little or no to tell apart the evolution of Islam from the heritage of Christianity, with the Muslim international now stepping into an international modernity. delicate to demographic variables and their mirrored image of non-public and social truths, Courbage and Todd successfully upend a deadly meme, during which a fractured international is thought to be just about quandary as a result of an endemic of closed cultures and males made diverse via religion.
