What exactly does Islamism mean? And what explains its violent expansion in recent decades? Are there

similarities between Islamism and classical totalitarian regimes and ideologies? Will it fail, as those regimes did in

Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union; or can it adapt effectively to changing realities? What are the fundamental

strengths and weaknesses of the Islamic project?

Addressing these questions within a context both historical and global,Mehdi Mozaffari provides an important

new framework for understanding the full impact of Islamism in the Middle East and beyond.

MEDIA REVIEWS

history and politics."-Roger Griffin, Oxford Brookes University

"An important contribution to debates on the role of totalitarian ideologies and movements in the 21st century."

-Uwe Backes, Hannah Arendt Institute, TU Dresden

From the reviews of the Danish edition:

"With its conceptual clarifications and analytical tools, [this book] opens the door to an understanding

of the relation between Islam, Islamism, Islamization, and events in the Middle East."
