Political Islam in the Age of Democratization pp Cite as. T he contemporary phenomenon popularly referred to as political Islam or Islamism has existed for well over a century, and yet much of the scholarly literature on it only appeared after the s.

Consequently, the scholarly literature of that time reflected this reality and was therefore dominated by books and articles on Arab nationalism.

Understanding the Complexity of Political Islam
This innovative volume brings together specialists in international relations to tackle a set of difficult questions about what it means to live in a globalized world where the purpose and direction of world politics are no longer clear-cut. In Islam and Politics, Peter Mandaville accomplishes an extraordinary feat: the book is nuanced and substantive yet accessible for introductory audiences. From questions about jihad and state-sponsored Islamist to the relationship between global processes and local politics, Mandaville's clear-headed approach unpacks not only the phenomena of Islamist politics themselves, but also the powerful narratives about Islamism that themselves shape the direction of global politics. This work incisively examines a subject of intense public and policy interest. Ranging widely across issues and regions, Islam and Politics provides an unerring guide to Islamism and the impact of globalisation from above and protest from below. The analysis is always illuminating, the writing accessible and balanced.

In setting out to demystify Islamism and the forces that drive it, Hardy suggests that for the last two hundred years Muslims have been in revolt against Western domination — and against the failures and disappointments of modernisation. The book takes the form of a journey. Drawing on his travels and encounters as a journalist over the last thirty years, the author explains the political role of Islam in particular countries and regions — Egypt, Iran, Pakistan, Sudan, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, south-east Asia, Europe — while at the same time telling the story of Islamism from its origins in the era of European colonialism to the emergence of Al-Qaeda and the global jihadists of today. And no author has packed more wisdom into such a short, clear and readable book. It is hard to imagine a more reliable guide across the varied and complex terrains of political Islam.
