Summary
"The Iranian revolution, the hostage crisis, and the energy shortage are instances of how dramatically 'Islam' has become news. In the West, academic experts, corporate and governmental policymakers, and the media see 'Islam' as representing everything from anti-Americanism to good business to an inferior culture, a dangerously enthusiastic religion, and bad values. In response to this, Islamic countries use 'Islam' to strengthen state structures or to rally masses, thereby papering over the diversity beneath the Islamic cover"--Publisher description
