Islamic studies (Prometheus Books)

Sous l’impulsion d’Ibn Warraq, La maison d’édition new-yorkaise Prometheus Books édite des travaux autour du Coran d’un grand intérêt. Bien que la ligne éditoriale souffre d’un à priori défavorable à l’endroit de l’islam (?) (auquel nous n’adhérons absolument pas), il n’en demeure pas moins que le travail de réédition et d’édition d’ouvrages critiques (et critiquables) sont les bienvenues. On citera les titres suivants présents dans ce catalogue :

- Crossroads to Islam (Yehuda NEVO)
- In search of the original Koran (éd. Ibn WARRAQ)
- Quranic studies (John WANSBROUGH)
- The origins of the Koran (éd. Ibn WARRAQ)
- The quest for the historical Muhammad (éd. Ibn WARRAQ)
- The sectarian milieu (John WANSBROUGH)
- What the Koran really says (éd. Ibn WARRAQ)
- The Syro-Aramaic Reading of the Koran : A Contribution to the Decoding of the Language of the Koran (Christoph LUXENBERG)
- In search of the original Koran : the true history of the revealed text (Mondher SFAR)
