Publisher’s blurb: Marmaduke Pickthall: British Muslim is an examination of his ideas and writings. For twenty years of Pickthall’s adult life, he was a devout Christian, and for the last twenty years he was a devout Muslim. Peter Clark’s book raises issues of Muslim and national identity. Pickthall wrote much about Islam which he saw as an open, tolerant and progressive religion. A reissue of the book is a timely and authoritative contribution to current debates.
