A brave and timely examination of America's great dilemma in the Muslim world
Published just as the United States went to war in Iraq, "After Jihad put Noah Feldman "into the center of an unruly brawl now raging in policy circles over what to do with the Arab world" ("The New York Times Book Review).
A year later, the questions Feldman raises-and answers-are at the center of every serious discussion about America's role in the world. How can Islam and democracy be reconciled? How can the United States sponsor emerging Islamic democrats without appeasing radicals and terrorists? Can we responsibly remain allies with stable but repressive Arab regimes, chaotic emerging democracies, and Israel as well?
"After Jihad made Feldman, in a stroke, the leading Western authority on emerging Islamic democracy--and the most prominent adviser to the Iraqis drafting a constitution for their newly freed nation. This paperback edition--which includes a new preface taking account of recent events--is the best single book on the nature of Islam today and on the forms Islam is likely to take in the coming years.
From the Publisher:
An evaluation of the possibility of democracy within Islamic nations surveys the contemporary Muslim world and considers western responsibilities in making it possible, urging the United States to support Islamic democrats rather than repressive regimes.
Annotation:
AFTER JIHAD examines the ways that Islam that can exist within a political democracy. Feldman, a law professor at New York University, uncovers the attendant regional concerns that relate to Islam, such as oil and existing monarchies that sit in opposition to democracy. He argues that overcoming these forces may not be as difficult as we imagine.

Praise

Kirkus Reviews
"A sincere plea for the US not to let a Burqa Curtain descend on more Islamic countries, undercut by solid academese and unduly rosy speculation." 02/15/2003
