This volume presents an examination and a critical appreciation of how the discipline of Islamic studies evolved in its various historical contents. At the same time it seeks to reflect upon the ironic effects, whereby "Orientalism" and Islamic studies, which emerged as European disciplines to study the "other", have themselves become texts and objects of study.
