Abstract

Ali Allawi is an Iraqi statesman who served in post-Saddam Iraq as Minister of Defense and then Minister of Finance and is currently a Senior Fellow at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government. In his book The Crisis of Islamic Civilization he gives a wake-up call for Muslims “to muster the inner resources of their faith to fashion a civilizing outer presence.” He questions the very possibility of the survival and continuity of Islam’s “transcendental ideal” in the face of profound challenges brought by modernity, globalisation, and impersonal technological and marketising forces.
