Seminal work on the responses of Islam to the modern world. Starting with the present-day condition of man in the modern world and the dilemma of the present-day Muslim, Seyyed Hossein Nasr discusses the interchange that has continued between Islam and the West over the centuries. The author then proceeds to examine the profound struggle in the Muslim world between the Islamic tradition and Western ideologies and culture concentrating on the present situations in the Arab world, in Iran, in India and in Pakistan. In addition to a new preface, this revised edition of Islam and the Plight of Modern Man includes two new chapters: Islam at the Dawn of the Third Christian Millennium, and Reflections on Islam and the West: Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow.
