Eminent scholars from the USA, UK, Iran, Saudi Arabia and India have contributed 21 articles to this volume, covering the domains of language and literature, Islam and the Quran, Literary Orientalism, and the higher education scenario in India. These areas of studies have been of interest to Professor Abdur Raheem Kidwai, Aligarh Muslim University, Aligarh, India, whose 60th birthday this commemorative volume marks.
This volume will be read with much profit by all those interested in cross-cultural studies, especially the relationship between the West and Islam, which is regrettably plagued by misperceptions, often culminating in distrust and hostility. Professor Kidwai's writings have all along sought to bridge the unfortunate divide between the two major world faiths and cultures.
This commemorative volume to mark the 60th birthday of Professor Abdur Raheem Kidwai, Aligarh Muslim University, carries articles on English language, literature, Literary Orientalism, translation, higher education, Islam and the Quran - the areas of Professor Kidwai's specialization. This volume aims at promoting cross-cultural understanding between the Orient and the West, developing better understanding of Islam and the Quran, examining the issues and challenges related to higher education in India and analysing the Quran translations in English.
People interested in cross-cultural studies, especially the relationship between the West and Islam. Also for people interested in Language and Literature, Islam and the Quran, Literary Orientalism and the higher education scenario in India.
