Sarajevo essays : politics, ideology, and tradition by Rusmir Mahmutćehajić( )

11 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 1,873 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of Bosnia's leading intellectuals explains the Bosnian experience by critiquing the politics and ideology that brought about the great destruction -- both material and spiritual -- of Bosnia and Herzegovina. These incisive and theologically profound essays address the confrontation between the West and Islam as the author explores the realm of humanity's long-standing search for the roots of evil in the dual nature of mankind to gain insight into ways of achieving peace. By drawing on the Bosnian situation, the author explores questions of identity and otherness, knowledge and transcendence, authority and authoritarianism, and tradition and fundamentalism, and he argues for a reconciliation between modernity and tradition for the benefit of modern coexistence, not just in his native land but throughout the world
Bosnia the good : tolerance and tradition by Rusmir Mahmutcehajic( )

16 editions published between 1997 and 2000 in 4 languages and held by 1,626 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The author argues for the history and reality of a Bosnia-Herzegovina based upon a model of 'unity in diversity'. He shows that ethnic and religious cultures co-existed in Bosnia for centuries and that Croatian and Serbian leaders determined to enact their own nationalist programs are to be blamed for the conflicts that devastated a nation. He points out the decisive moment when the international community accepted the Serb/Croat argument that ancient ethnic hatreds were endemic to Bosnia and that ethnic segregation became not only acceptable but desirable
The mosque : the heart of submission by Rusmir Mahmutćehajić( )

12 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and held by 1,183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Argues that the mosque is not an analogue of the Christian church. Rather, every Muslim is his or her own priest, and most religious obligations are performed in the home. This book seeks to rebuild the spirit and majesty of each mosque that was destroyed
The denial of Bosnia by Rusmir Mahmutćehajić( )

16 editions published between 1998 and 2008 in 5 languages and held by 1,169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Mahmutcehajic argues for the history and reality of a Bosnia-Herzegovina based upon a model of "unity in diversity." He shows that ethnic and religious cultures have coexisted in Bosnia for centuries. Partitioning of Bosnia, therefore, should have been unthinkable except that a multi-ethnic, multi-faith Bosnia stood squarely in the way of Croatian and Serbian leaders determined to enact their own nationalist programs. The decisive moment came when the international community accepted the Serb-Croat argument that ancient ethnic hatreds were endemic to Bosnia. At that point, ethnic segregation became not only acceptable but desirable. With the complicity of Western powers, Serbs and Croats proceeded to carve out ethnically cleansed states."--Jacket
On the other : a Muslim view by Rusmir Mahmutcehajic( )

13 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 742 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A leading European exponent of Muslim intellectual tradition, On the Other: A Muslim View is a concise and accessible exploration of the foundations of Islamic thought on human nature, our place in the cosmos, and our proper relationship to the divine, based on peace, knowledge, love, beauty, humility, and respect for and acceptance of others and difference. Applying sound linguistic and historical scholarship and a profound knowledge of the Qur'anic sources, the author analyzes the key Arabic terms to show that Islam is a religion of peace, rather than of irrational submission to some higher instance. -- Book Jacket

The work of Mehmedalija "Mak" Dizdar (1917-71) is the cornerstone of modern Bosnian literature. During the Second World War he was a member of the anti-fascist Partisans.

On love : in the Muslim tradition by Rusmir Mahmutćehajić( Book )

15 editions published between 2004 and 2007 in 3 languages and held by 275 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This rare and important contribution to the field of Islamic studies, philosophy, and comparative religion achieves a twofold objective. First, it draws from a broad and authoritative well of sources, especially in the domain of Sufism, or Islamic mysticism. The scholarship is impeccable. Second, it is an in-depth meditation on the relationship between love and knowledge, multiplicity and unity, the example of the Prophet Muhammad viewed as Universal Man, spiritual union, heart and intellect, and other related themes - conveyed in fresh, contemporary language."--Jacket
