In this important, myth-shattering book, the West gets its first look at the Daudi Bohras, a unique Muslim denomination who have found the core of their religious beliefs largely compatible with modern ideology. Combining orthodox Muslim prayer, dress, and practice with secular education, relative gender equality, and Internet use, their community serves as a surprising reminder that the central values of "modernity" are hardly limited to the West. This is the kind of work to give to younger scholars so as the awaken them to the wonders and the variety of the world.
