A fascinating collection of essays that covers all the main dimensions of Yusuf al-Qaradawi, providing well-documented and carefully considered evaluations of key dimensions of Qaradawi's activities and thinking and the more theoretical dimension of his methodology. Author: Jorgen S. Nielsen
The Global Mufti has the potential to become a modern classic in the study of contemporary Islam. Author: Goran Larsson
this is an essential book for anyone interested understanding contemporary Islam and the Muslim world. And while the book may downplay some of the most controversial of Qaradawi's views, these are too often the only aspects of his thought that are discussed in the West. The editors have therefore done a great service in bringing other, less discussed, yet probably more important issues into focus. Source: New Republic
An outstanding legal scholar, an Islamist activist and a renowned host of al-Jazeera's most popular religious program, "Sharia and Life", Yusuf al-Qaradawi is one of the best-known and most controversial figures of contemporary Islamism. Indeed, it is difficult to think of another Muslim scholar-activist whose global influence matches, let alone exceeds, that of Qaradawi Born in 1926 in a poor village in the Egyptian Delta, as a young man he attended a lecture by Hassan al-Banna, the founder of the Muslim Brotherhood, and immediately joined the organisation's youth wing. In the late 1940s, Qaradawi studied at al-Azhar University in Cairo, excelling in theology, while running the Brotherhood's student wing. When in 1954 Nasser cracked down on the Brotherhood, Qaradawi was gaoled twice, but was released in time to obtain his degree from al-Azhar. In 1961 Qaradawi settled in the Gulf state of Qatar where he played a pivotal role establishing its Islamic higher education system. He eschewed any formal position in the Muslim Brotherhood when the movement was forced underground and instead developed into a major writer and ideologist of contemporary Islamist thought.From the mid-1970s Qaradawi became one of a handful of Islamist ulama (Muslim scholars) that became accepted as authorities on doctrinal and political matters, both by Islamists and within the wider Islamic resurgence. Since the 1990s Qaradawi has reached a global audience by cleverly exploiting new media: he was one of the first Sunni scholars to launch his own website, is involved with Islam Online and just celebrated ten years hosting his weekly religious affairs programme on al-Jazeera. Qaradawi's standing - among ulama, Islamists and the Arab (if not the Muslim) public at large - is such that he is undeniably considered the most important Sunni religious figure in the world today. This volume is the first book-length treatment of Yusuf al-Qaradawi in any European language. See all Product description

If you want to know all about Dr. Qaradawi in English stop searching for another book on him, because you'd never find a book on Dr. Qaradawi in English nowhere near to this book.
My only concern is the cover page because it's quite inappropriate colours (PINK!!!) and you hardly see Dr. Qaradawi's picture himself.
Once again thanks to Petersen and Graf.
