    Until about 1800, the West and the Islamic realm were like two adjacent, parallel universes, each assuming itself to be the center of the world while ignoring the other. As Europeans colonized the globe, the two world histories intersected and the Western narrative drove the other one under. The West hardly noticed, but the Islamic world found the encounter profoundly disrupting.

    Story
    What did you love best about Destiny Disrupted?

    The premise - to tell history through Islamic eyes - is exciting for those of us most familiar with the European-dominated world histories.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Destiny Disrupted?

    Addressing the development of Wahabbism, Ansary clearly put the movement in context and names ways it has continued to develop that matter greatly today, but were not obviously part of early teachings.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The story of the development of Sufism and the initial response of rulers to try and crush it.
