Esposito, Turkey, Israel, Margot Veillon - Al Ahram

John L Esposito's academic fame and his specialisation in issues like political Islam and Muslim-Christian relations make him something of an international intellectual celebrity as well as a magnet for neoconservative criticism back home. Over the past 35 years Esposito, professor of religion and international affairs and of Islamic studies at Georgetown University, has authored and co-authored more than 30 books covering Islamic movements from North Africa to South East Asia, among other issues. A consultant to the Department of State as well as to corporations, universities and the media, Esposito, 69, is an authority on many of today's more pressing political affairs, issues that have, if anything, become more relevant with the election of a US president who has committed himself to improving his country's relationship with the Muslim world. -
