Description

Since the Second World War, Islam and politics have combined to form a potent force known as Islamic fundamentalism. This force has, in recent years, grabbed the headlines as a new and grave threat to the West. Milton-Edwards analyses the roots and emergence of the new Islamic movements and the main thinkers that inspired them. Providing a much-needed historical overview, the main facets of Islamic fundamentalism are put in a global context, with a thematic debate of issues such as: * the effects of colonialism on Islam * secularism and the Islamic reaction * Islam and violence * globalisation and transnational Islamic movements * Islam in the wake of 9/11.
