Western Sufism. From the Abbasids to the New Age.
Oxford University Press, 2016. 368p. Hardback. Western Sufism stands on its own as a model intellectual history of a significant stream of global spirituality. It is a major contribution to our understanding of the inevitable distortions, compromises, revisions, and entrepreneurism that accompany any attempt at transnational transmission of spiritual traditions from one culture to another.
