Michael Sells on Religious Violence

Michael Sells, Professor of Islamic History and Literature at the University of Chicago, discussed contemporary issues of religious violence today on WBEZ’s Worldview with host Jerome McDonnell.

Sells is the author of a number of books on Islamic culture and on issues of religious violence, including The Bridge Betrayed: Religion and Genocide in Bosnia, and The New Crusades: Constructing the Muslim Enemy.
