According to author Jonathan Lyons, the Western view of Islam has prevented the West from responding effectively to its most significant 21st-century challenges: the rise of Islamic power, the emergence of religious violence, and the growing tension between established social values and multicultural rights among Muslim immigrant populations. Lyons addresses the issues of Islam and modernity, Islam and violence, and Islam and women and proposes new ways of thinking about the Western relationship to the Islamic world.

Speaker Biography: Jonathan Lyons spent twenty years as a foreign correspondent and editor for Reuters, much of it in the Islamic world. His research focuses on the shifting boundaries between East and West, and his publications include "The House of Wisdom: How the Arabs Transformed Western Civilization" and (with Geneive Abdo) "Answering Only to God: Faith and Freedom in Twenty-first-Century Iran." He has a doctorate in sociology and lives in Washington, D.C.
