The "think tank" of the Hudson Center for Religious Freedom in Washington (USA) has drawn attention to itself for years with solid professional publications on a large range of political themes, among them the themes of religious freedom, Islam, and Islamism. The present monograph is devoted to a subject that, on the whole, has been only seldom treated: apostasy and blasphemy, that is, the defection from Islam and blasphemy and its consequences. With this extensive study, Paul Marshall (Senior Fellow) and Nina Shea (Director of the Center for Religious Freedom at the Hudson Institute) offer a comprehensive insight into the realm of the, in part, extremely limited freedom of opinion and religion in Islamic-dominated states.
