Stephen Suleyman Schwartz is the Executive Director of the Center for Islamic Pluralism in Washington, DC (http://www.islamicpluralism.org) and author of the 2008 book The Other Islam: Sufism and the Road to Global Harmony. In 2002, he published the bestselling The Two Faces of Islam: Saudi Fundamentalism and Its Role In Terrorism. In the aftermath of September 11, 2001, his extensive
and authoritative writings on the phenomenon of Wahhabism established him as one of the leading global experts on Islam, its internal divisions, and its relations with other faiths. Mr. Schwartz began a serious examination of Islam in 1990, when he first visited Yugoslavia and is an expert on Shiism and
Sufism. His investigative reporting on Islamist extremism has led to repeat appearances on TV and radio networks. His articles have been printed in the world’s major newspapers, including The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, the Los Angeles Times, the Toronto Globe and Mail, and many more. He
is a regular contributor to The Weekly Standard and a range of online periodicals.
