Modernization in the Muslim world was determined by the two interrelated processes of indigenous state formation and European economic penetration. These drove governments to enlist the orthodox and the masses in support of the consolidation of their central authority, and religious reformers to seek, partly through Western devices, checks on their authority. This study traces the emergence of modern Islam and examines the relationship of Islamic modernization to the rise of Arab Nationalism.
