This book has significant historical value: a) it offers a serious insight into the British psyche at the height of Victorian England by delving into the serious debates which ensued in the wake of the revolt in India. The result is analytical reflections on British imperial, evangelical,economic, political, military and moral thinking. While a majority of the Britons were social, political or spiritual Rudyard Kiplings, a smaller number, like Chartists headed by Ernst Jones and the Irish nationalists were moral provocateurs who seriously challenged the conscience of theircountrymen on imperial issues. b) The book breaks a number of myths which had been carefully nurtured in Britain about the popular acceptance of British rule in India. Even though public opinion by its very nature is a combination of fact, fiction, and gossip, the extraordinarily large number ofreports from the field in India (the fist mail dealing with the uprising in India brought more than 20,000 pieces of mail from the rebel colony on 26 June1857) shattered the long held convictions in Britain that their rule was popularly embraced by the populace in India. c)The book further opens anew vista in the study of the Indian 'mutiny'; so far it has been viewed everything except a Muslim rebellion, while the reports from the field indicated that it was a Muslim rebellion first and last. Why this interpretation was missed by so many scholars in the past is an inexplicable enigma. WhileHindu participation was based on their perceived or real grievances and was limited in scale, the heart and soul of Muslims was in the revolt and it was shared in all parts of Indo-Pakistan subcontinent - from province to province and from villages through towns into cities. d) The book also opens anew chapter on the degree to which Christian evangelism had taken hold of British imperial effort in India, used and exploited it to advance missionary efforts in the South Asian colony. It also reveals the degree to which Christians had become intolerant of other faiths.

Two of the more important developments in world history over the past two centuries have been the expansion of Western power and the revival of Islam. South Asia has played a central role in both processes, being the main focus of the imperialism of the British and an important site of the Muslim revival. These essays, which were written over the past ten years, confront some of the key issues raised by some modern developments in South Asia: the interactions between British power and Muslim revivalism in giving shape to the modern Muslim world; the role of knowledge in fashioning Muslim societies and the rise of the `ulama, to greater influence than ever before. It also explores the great shift from an other-worldly to a this-worldly piety amongst Muslims, the energy this has given the Muslim revival, and its meaning for relations between Islam and the West. The essays are rounded off by reviews of major contributions to the field over the period. Among the themes which emerge are: the influence both of orientalism and of Hindu revivalism on the world of scholarship, and the fact that the world is a better place when we remember the humanity we share. This book offers profound insights to those wishing to understand the background to the interactions of Islam, South Asia and the West in our time.

Moslem Women is built around six main chapters, with half devoted to the place and experience of Islamic women and half considering Christian mission to Islamic women and associated themes. The Zwemers acknowledge some of the great women of Islamic history, such as Rabia, the famous early mystic, and Nurah Mahal, wife of the Mughal Emperor Jahangir. They speak in glowing terms about advances in the women's situation in post-Ottoman Turkey. Samuel and Amy Zwemer's dedication to serving Muslims and to seeing them as people rather than as faceless numbers provides an excellent model for today's Christians who feel called to engagement with Islam.
