  • La laïcité face à l'Islamby Olivier Roy

    Stock 2005; Not Available

    On va fêter, en 2005, le centenaire des lois sur la laïcité. Or il se trouve que la présence en France d?une forte minorité de religion musulmane remet au c?ur de la discussion publique des problèmes qui évoquent ceux qui s?étaient posés il y a un siècle, au moment de l?affrontement de l?État républicain et de l?Église catholique. Les mêmes problèmes... more...

  • Holy Ignorance: When Religion and Culture Part Waysby Roy Olivier

    Oxford University Press 2010; US$ 10.99

    Olivier Roy, world-renowned authority on Islam and politics, finds in the modern disconnection between faith communities and socio-cultural identities a fertile space for fundamentalism to grow.

    Brookings Institution Press 2012; US$ 28.95

    For every pithy conceptualization of complex events, there are additional lenses through which to examine them. One of the several virtues of this book is precisely that it brings different perspectives to bear on the complexity, diversity, and uncertainty of recent and current events in the Arab world. The thirteen authors concentrate on the critical... more...

  • Religious Conversions in the Mediterranean Worldby Nadia Marzouki; Olivier Roy

    Palgrave Macmillan 2013; US$ 90.00

Through studies of conversions across the region this book examines the challenges that conversions represent for national, legal and policy ways of dealing with religious minorities.... more...
