The Closing of the Muslim Mind: How Intellectual Suicide Created the Modern Islamist Crisis

The book you must read to understand the Islamist crisis—and the threat to us all

'“Brilliant and groundbreaking . . . Should be read by anyone who wants to understand one of the most fundamental causes of conflict in the 21st century.” —National Review Online“A book that may offer the key to both understanding and perhaps defeating the ongoing war of terror against the West.” —American Spectator“Reilly comes closer to providing a persuasive explanation [of what happened to Islamic culture] than any other account I have seen.” —Weekly Standard“Meticulously researched . . . A must-read.” —John M. Poindexter, National Security Advisor to President Reagan“Shows that a millennium ago Muslims debated whether minds should be free to explore the world—and freedom lost . . . Astonishing.” —World magazine“Required reading.” —George Weigel, biographer of Pope John Paul II“Superb and essential . . . Fascinating.” —Jihad Watch“Eminently readable . . . This book should be compulsory reading at all institutions dedicated to preventing another 9/11.” —Hudson Institute“Superb and stimulating . . . Reilly’s small book has earned a place near the top of the tiny library of books I regard as indispensable. How did I live so many years without it?” —Joseph Sobran“Robert Reilly helps explain the Muslim worldview by thoroughly documenting the historic and doctrinal roots behind it; by refreshingly bypassing the overly dramatized question of ‘what went wrong,’ he explains the more pressing ‘why it went wrong.’” —Raymond Ibrahim“I strongly recommend this book to anyone who wants to deeply understand the different ways of thinking within Islam and the phenomenon of radical Islam.” —Tawfik Hamid, chair for the Study of Islamic Radicalism at the Potomac Institute for Policy Studies“Lucid and fascinating . . . Brilliant.” —Roger Scruton, author of The West and the Rest'
