9780195395891: The Oxford Handbook of Islam and Politics (Oxford Handbooks)

Over the past three decades, scholars, government analysts and terrorism experts have examined the relationship between Islam and politics. But specialists have tended to limit their analysis to a specific country or focus. Few works have provided a geographically comprehensive, in-depth analysis. Since 9/11, another wave of literature on political Islam and global terrorism has appeared, much of it superficial and sensationalist. This situation underscores the need for a comprehensive, analytical, and in-depth examination of Islam and politics in the post-9/11 era and in an increasingly globalizing world. The Oxford Handbook of Islam and Politics, with contributions from prominent scholars and specialists, provides a comprehensive analysis of what we know and where we are in the study of political Islam. It enables scholars, students, and policymakers to understand the interaction of Islam and politics and the multiple and diverse roles of Islamic movements, as well as issues of authoritarianism and democratization, religious extremism and terrorism regionally and globally.

About the Author:


John L. Esposito is University Professor of Religion and International Affairs at Georgetown University and Founding Director of the Prince Alwaleed Bin-Talal Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding. He is the editor of The Oxford Encyclopedia of Modern Islam and The Oxford History of Islam, and author of Unholy War, What Everyone Needs to Know about Islam, The Future of Islam, and many other acclaimed works.

Emad El-Din Shahin is Professor of Public Policy at the School of Global Affairs and Public Policy at the American University in Cairo. He is the author of Political Ascent: Contemporary Islamic Movements in North Africa, Through Muslim Eyes: Muhammad Rashid Rida and the West, and, with Nathan J. Brown, The Struggle over Democracy in the Middle East: Regional Politics and External Policies.

Review:


"Esposito and Shahin are two of the most prolific and prominent scholars of Islam today. It is entirely expected that they would be able to assemble a team of contributors who are well respected in the field, and encourage them to present essays that are informed and engaging. The result is commendable... At a time when misunderstandings and misinformation about Islam abound, this timely, erudite book offers a comprehensive and authoritative survey of most of the current issues relating to Islam and politics... Highly recommended." --CHOICE
