Heavy Metal on Inside Islam
Here are my thoughts on democracy in the Middle East and Heavy Metal Islam, a book by Mark LeVine.
The fight over what Islam means in the world today is an increasingly critical one and, from the Iraq war to heavy metal music, the world struggles to articulate what it means in a modern sense.Mark’s work reveals that the debate is complicated and there are a spectrum of opinions, voices and meanings even in everyday life. He uses the universal language of music to articulate the diversity of Islam in contemporary times.
It was an interesting topic to think through so I’m linking to it on Foshowley. I hope you find it interesting as well and worth discussing. Also, I just made commenting easier on the Inside Islam site. If you have any reactions, will you leave them there? They’re much appreciated.
