In Islamism and Secularism in North Africa, leading scholars from the United States, Europe, and North Africa explore the Islamic challenge. Drawing on the disciplines of political science, history, sociology and anthropology, the contributors examine the relations between religion, the state, and political opposition movements in North Africa. Although the contributors show that the Islamic revival is energized by acute current problems of corruption, political exclusion, and pauperization, they also argue that its roots can be found in North African history, and that the Islamist-secular divide reflects deep intellectual, political and social differences that are not likely to disappear.
