Understanding Muslim Discourse provides a well-illustrated account of the major ideas currently in use within the Muslim discourse, and also examines the mechanics whereby Bin Laden's message has become popular, legitimate, and one of the most dominant voices in this discourse. The book, therefore, explores the ways in which Bin Laden's popularity and legitimacy are rooted in his eloquence and ability to manipulate the poetic and religious traditions, as well as the collective memories of Islam, in his attempt to disseminate his own vision of the Muslim faith.
