Discipline and Reasons of Power in Christianity and Islam“This eloquent, lucid, and complex work is the product of remarkable intelligence and erudition; it is a profound contribution to the understanding of the cultural hegemony of the West.”–Ralph M. Coury, Religious Studies Review.

“All articles are extremely well written, exhibit impressive scholarship, and are thoughtful and are thoughtful and stimulating. Asad’s criticisms are neither judgmental nor self-righteous but are generally driven by the will to understand.”–James R. Wood, Contemporary Sociology.
