Lost in the Sacred:
Why the Muslim World Stood Still
Dan Diner
Translated by Steven Rendall

Book Description | Table of Contents
Introduction [HTML] or [PDF format]

ADDITIONAL ENDORSEMENTS:

"Dan Diner's breadth of knowledge, capacity for clear and broad interpretation, and stylistic sovereignty will no doubt make this a classic in the field."--Anson Rabinbach, Princeton University

"A controversial but refreshingly un-Anglo-Saxon search for answers to some outsized questions."--Michael Cook, Princeton University

"Lost in the Sacred offers a broad synthesis on a key problem of the contemporary Middle East, hence of the world at large. It sets out to describe and account for a strange historical phenomenon: how is it that the Arab world so slowly changes--nay, came to some sort of a standstill? Diner handles the best sources and secondary literature with great skill and literary talent."--Rémi Brague, author of The Law of God
