US$ 119.95
Adding a new dimension to the ongoing scholarly and political debate about Islamism or political Islam within the context of modern politics in Africa, the Middle East and the Muslim world, this study details the development and disintegration of the Islamists' Republic in the Sudan. The Islamists' regime in the Sudan has propagated a distinctive ideology whose declared aim was to create a primary model of an Islamist state. This book is the story of the social world of Islamism. Based on extensive field work inside and outside the regime, it provides an entry point into its local and global worlds as they interact and collide with each other. The book places considerable emphasis on the theoretical development and growth of Islamism to address the profound transformations within political Islam. Political scientists, sociologists interested in religion and Middle Eastern and African scholars should read this book.
