Synopsis

Among the Believers; An Islamic Journey, written by V. S. Naipaul, describes a six-month journey across the Asian continent after the Iranian Revolution. V. S. Naipaul explores the culture and explosive situations in countries where Islamic fundamentalism was growing. He begins his travels in Iran, to Pakistan, Malaysia, and comes to an end in Indonesia with a short stop in Pakistan and Iran upon return to the UK.    The aim of the author was to study culture with a long pre-Islamic history and their modern attempts to establish a religious state. A controversial work, this has been one of Naipaul's better-selling publications and after the book's publication, Naipaul was awarded the Jerusalem Prize.   In 1998 Naipaul published a sequel Beyond Belief: Islamic Excursions among the Converted Peoples.
