- We can order this
Ever since the terrorist incident of September 11th a general understanding seems to have arisen among people that the challenges posed by Islam have now acquired human and global dimensions.
Popular Movements and Democratization in the Islamic World contains case studies of people's movements in diverse areas and periods, and it seeks to develop a comparative view of Islam and democracy that goes beyond the usual stereotype of Islam being incompatible with democracy. Unravelling the complexities that have arisen between Islam and democracy is the principal task of Islamic scholars, and this book will undoubtedly prove a starting point for all such endeavours.
While primarily intended for students and scholars, this timely and important text will prove of interest even to general readers with interests in Islamic studies.
