Publisher Comments:

This book provides in-depth discussions of Islamic thought across the twentieth century, encompassing the breadth of self-expression in Muslim communities world-wide. It explores key themes in modern Islamic thinking, including the social origins and ideological underpinnings of the late nineteenth- early twentieth-century Islamic reformist project, nationalism in the Muslim world, Islamist attitudes towards democracy, the science of Islamic economics, Islamist notions of family and the role of women, Muslim perceptions and constructions of the West, and aspects of Muslim thinking on Christians and Jews.

Among their topics are the rise of reformist and its challenge to traditional Islam, national and cultural, democracy and pluralism, Islamic economics, gender and the family, and views on Christians and Jews. Distributed in the US by Palgrave.
