Many have been imprisoned for it, some have been forced into exile and others threatened with execution.And yet, in a region where the influence of religion is almost inescapable, growing numbers are claiming a right to believe – or disbelieve – as they see fit.

Social media have given them a voice and the uprisings that toppled Arab dictators have emboldened them to speak out.In this ground-breaking book, journalist Brian Whitaker looks at the factors that lead them to abandon religion and the challenges they pose for governments and societies that claim to be organised according to the will of God.Brian Whitaker is a former Middle East editor of the Guardian newspaper. He is the author of What’s Really Wrong with the Middle East and Unspeakable Love: Gay and Lesbian Life in the Middle East.

He blogs about Arab society and politics at www.al-bab.com
