Transnational Political Islam

Azza Karam
Price: $ 19.95

Political Islam, to be distinguished from Islam as a culture or a religion, and from Islamic Fundamentalism, is an increasingly important feature of the western political scene. The ideologies of Political Islam reflect the fact that some of their adherents live and work within a Western socio-political context. Although Political Islam has been widely written about in Muslim countries, very little has been published the West, and this book attempts to redress that imbalance.

With a range of outstanding contributors that includes academics and human rights advocates, this book tackles the diversity of Islamist thinking and practice in various Western countries including Germany, Sweden, the UK, Bosnia, and the US and explores their transnational connections in both East and West. The book analyzes developments in Islamist thinking and activities, and their connections to the latest global political and economic trends, and discusses future evolutions of the ideology and its manifestations.

Azza Karam is a Program Director at the World Conference on Religion and Peace in New York.He is a co-editor of Pluto's Critical Studies on Islam Series.
