From Karachi to Tunis, Kabul to Tehran, across the Middle East, North Africa, South Asia, and beyond, these trailblazers often risked death to combat the rising tide of fundamentalism within their own countries. But this global community of writers, artists, doctors, musicians, museum curators, lawyers, activists, and educators of Muslim heritage remains largely invisible, lost amid the heated coverage of Islamist terror attacks on one side and abuses perpetrated against suspected terrorists on the other. A veteran of 20 years of human rights research and activism, Karima Bennoune draws on extensive fieldwork and interviews to illuminate the inspiring stories of those who represent one of the best hopes for ending fundamentalist oppression worldwide.

Very educational, thought-provoking and inspiring
This is an amazing book. I learned so much and you get a true feeling of what liberal, peace-loving activists struggle with in the fight against fundamentalism. It is so inspiring and absolutely worth the read. The author delves into so many facets of the struggle that you have a deeper and more comprehensive understanding of the problem. Unbiased and extremely informative. Must read!
