Hashtag Islam: How Cyber-Islamic Environments Are Transforming Religious Authority - Islamic Civilization and Muslim Networks (Paperback)Gary R. Bunt (author)
- We can order this from the publisher
Bunt shows how online rhetoric and social media are being used to articulate religious faith by many different kinds of Muslim organizations and individuals, from Muslim comedians and women's rights advocates to jihad-oriented groups, such as the ""Islamic State"" and al-Qaeda, which now clearly rely on strategic digital media policies to augment and justify their authority and draw recruits. This book makes clear that understanding CIEs is crucial for the holistic interpretation of authority in contemporary Islam.
