    Tectum Verlag 2014; US$ 25.25

    Religiöse Gebäude im öffentlichen Raum - sie stiften Identität für die einen und sorgen für Aufruhr bei den anderen. Damit sind sie im Kontext von Migration ein bedeutender Indikator dafür, wie weit eine religiöse Gruppe in einer Aufnahmegesellschaft anerkannt und in sie integriert ist. Josef Peter Schuler beschäftigt sich mit der Frage, wie präsent... more...

  • Rights, Religion and Reformby Chandra Muzaffar

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 67.95

    This book discusses issues concerning human rights and religion. Is a more integrated approach to human rights desirable - an approach that transcends the individual-centred orientation of civil and political liberties of the dominant centres of power in the West? How can religious thought contribute to an integrated notion of human rights and human... more...

    Institute of Southeast Asian Studies (ISEAS) 2009; US$ 74.90

    This is an excellent book which will have a major impact on the current debate about the relationship between Islam and politics in Indonesia. Its greatest strength is its innovative characterization of three Indonesian Muslim models of polity, as opposed to the normal two, Islamic state and secular state. Assyaukanie brilliantly delineates a third... more...

    Felix Meiner Verlag 2002; US$ 24.18

    Hauptbeschreibung Diese Spätschrift besticht durch ihre Knappheit, Geschlossenheit und Prägnanz.

  • Jihadby Reuven Firestone

    Oxford University Press 2000; US$ 18.99

    Since the Islamic resurgence began to make news, the Islamic idea of holy war, or "jihad", has been the subject of tremendous media attention - much of it sensationalistic. This study attempts to discover where and when the idea of jihad originated, and to trace its early development. more...
