Ahmed's book, which is based upon his travels with students throughout the Islamic world, discusses how globalization affects the already precarious relationship between the east and the west. Throughout the book, Ahmed outlines the progression of tensions between the two regions, attempts to shatter some of the misconceptions they have of one another, and analyzes the current situation of globalization to warn of the dubious future that awaits both regions if understanding is not reached.
