  • Lived Islam in South Asiaby Imtiaz Ahmad; Helmut Reifeld

    Taylor and Francis 2017; US$ 53.95

    South Asia is probably the largest area in the world where Islam exists within a mixed composite culture, overlapping with several other religions. No matter how many origins of political conflicts one may find in the domain of culture and religion, there are, at the same time, elements of peaceful co-existence as well. more...

  • State, Nationalism, and Islamizationby Raja M. Ali Saleem

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 137.54

    This book argues that Islam’s role in state nationalism is the best predictor of the Islamization of government using two most different cases: Turkey, which was an aggressively secular country until recently, and Pakistan, a country that is synonymous with Islamization. It establishes a causal link between Islam’s role in state nationalism and Islamization... more...

  • Religious Revival and Secularism in Post-Soviet Azerbaijanby Dobroslawa Wiktor-Mach

    De Gruyter 2017; US$ 140.00

    The series Religion and Society (RS) contributes to the exploration of religions as social systems– both in Western and non-Western societies; in particular, it examines religions in their differentiation from, and intersection with, other cultural systems, such as art, economy, law and politics. Due attention is given to paradigmatic... more...

  • Muslim Communities in England 1962-90by Jed Fazakarley

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 92.76

    This book analyses Muslim integration into English society from the 1960s to the 1990s. The author argues that, contrary to common narratives built around a sudden transformation during the Rushdie affair, religious identity was of great importance to English Muslims throughout this period. The study also considers what the experiences... more...

  • Voice of the Muslim Brotherhoodby Noha Mellor

    Taylor and Francis 2017; US$ 42.95

    In the wake of the 25 January revolution and the coup that followed in 2013, Egyptian bookstores recorded a significant increase in demand for books by and about the Muslim Brotherhood. However, despite the burgeoning literature on the Brotherhood, knowledge about the movement is still rather limited, particularly with regard to its most strategic... more...

  • Muslims, Money, and Democracy in Turkeyby Özlem Madi-Sisman

    Palgrave Macmillan US 2017; US$ 114.62

    This book contextualizes the rise of a neo-Islamic Turkish bourgeoisie class with a particular reference to the relationship between Islam and Capitalism, and makes the argument for their ultimate compatibility . Additionally, the claim is made that the formation of this new socio-economic class has been detrimental to Turkey's efforts to consolidate... more...

  • Muslim Studiesby George McCue

    Taylor and Francis 2017; US$ 44.95

    This is the first volume of Goldziher's Muslim Studies, which ranks highly among the classics of the scholarly literature on Islam. Indeed, the two volumes, originally published in German in 1889-1890, can justly be counted among those that laid the foundations of the modern study of Islam as a religion and a civilization. The first study deals with... more...

  • Years of Upheavalby Raphael Israeli

    Taylor and Francis 2017; US$ 54.95

    Years of Upheaval discusses 'Axial periods' in history; years that witnessed such fundamental reversals in history as to make the world turn upside down and inaugurate a new era. Raphael Israeli sees the post-1989 period as such a period in Islam. He explores events in the Islamic world since the end of the 1980s, and during the 1990s and their aftermath,... more...

  • Issues in Islamic Lawby MashoodA. Baderin

    Taylor and Francis 2017; US$ 450.00

    Islamic substantive law, otherwise called branches of the law (furu? al-fiqh), covers the textual provisions and jurisprudential rulings relating to specific transactions under Islamic law. It is to Islamic substantive law that the rules of Islamic legal theory are applied. The relationship between Islamic legal theory and Islamic substantive law is... more...

  • Islam and Secularism in Post-Colonial Thoughtby Hadi Enayat

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 51.52

    This book is a theoretically and historically informed exploration of 'secularism' in Muslim contexts. It does this through a critical assessment of an influential tradition of thinking about Islam and secularism, derived from the work of anthropologist Talal Asad and his followers. The study employs the tools of comparative historical sociology and... more...
