Islam and the Myth of Confrontation: Religion and Politics in the Middle East

by

Islam and the Myth of Confrontation: Religion and Politics in the Middle East Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The collapse of communism and the rise of militant Islamic movements in the Middle East, raised the specter of a future dominated by the conflict between "Islam" and "the West". September 11 has only branded that notion onto the worlds consciousness. In this up-to-date edition of Halliday's classic text, he sets out to reject these interpretations.

Synopsis:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 218-248) and index.
