The Islamic Liberation Reading List

Dandia, Asad
Los Angeles Review of Books

The Islamic Liberation Reading List aims to offer both a contribution and a critique to help readers grapple with our contemporary global crises, during where movements animated by racial, economic, gender, and environmental injustice (among others) have mobilized in the pursuit of a better world.

The purpose of compiling this reading list is to explore how Islam — both as an internal, autonomous set of discourses and practices, and as a global tradition with an indelible impact on the world — can help us think through these emergent vistas of possibility.
