Abstract This article suggests that, in the wake of the events of September 11, it would be an error for sociologists & political analysts to concentrate on revisions of economic & political theory while not paying equal attention to the moral tensions between Islamic & Western cultures. It proposes that economic & geopolitical research be expanded to include bilateral studies of Western & Islamic conceptions of morality & standards of right & wrong. The argument is based on the proposition that certain Western liberal attitudes threaten Islamic peoples' commitment to the traditional family, thereby delaying conflict resolution & providing terrorists with additional venues for 'justifying' their acts. Adapted from the source document.
