Impelled by way of a thousand years of anti-Muslim rules and pictures, the West has did not interact in any significant or effective manner with the realm of Islam. Formulated within the medieval halls of the Roman Curia and courts of the eu Crusaders and perfected within the newsrooms of Fox information and CNN, this anti-Islamic discourse determines what can and can't be acknowledged approximately Muslims and their faith, trapping the West in a perilous, dead-end politics that it can't afford.

He observes the discourse's corrosive results at the social sciences, together with sociology, politics, philosophy, theology, diplomacy, defense experiences, and human rights scholarship.

Through the highbrow "archaeology" of Michel Foucault, Lyons unearths the workings of this discourse and its underlying impression on our social, highbrow, and political lives. He then addresses problems with deep challenge to Western readers―Islam and modernity, Islam and violence, and Islam and women―and proposes new methods of wondering the Western dating to the Islamic world.
