This book explores the changing understandings of Islam by focusing on the Islamist movement's production of literary fiction since the early 1980s. By focusing on Islamic literary narratives of the period, this study introduces issues of change, space, history and analytical relation that are excluded by the essentialist reading of Islamism.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Cayir gives us an original and fresh insight to understand the inner workings of Islamic narrative and its transformation from an ideological one in the 1980s to a self-reflexive one in the 1990s." - Nilufer Goele, Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales, Paris

"Literature in Islam and its manifold faces is vast. However, Cayir skillfully discloses an unattended subject and identifies an unacknowledged transformation taking place in the Islamist ranks among those few writing Islamist novels in Turkey." - Yesim Arat, Department of Political Science and International Relations, Bogazici University, Istanbul

"Islamic Literature in Contemporary Turkey maintains excellent thoroughness and depth of approach. Placed alongside the publication of a number of recent books about Islamist politics, it stands out for its research, integration of theoretical and empirical material, intelligent and considered conclusions." - Christopher Houston, Macquarie University, Sydney
