Global Salafism: Islam's New Religious Movement (Columbia/Hurst)by Roel Meijer
Synopses & Reviews
Salafism and jihadi-Salafism have become significant doctrinal trends in contemporary Islamic thought, yet the West largely fails to offer a sophisticated and discerning definition of these movements.
The contributors to Global Salafism carefully outline both the differences among Salafist schools and the broader currents of Islamic thought constituting this trend. Essays examine the regional manifestations of the phenomenon and its shared essential doctrines. Their analyses highlight Salafism's inherent ambivalence and complexities, or the out-antiquing the antique that has brought Islamic thought into the modern age while simultaneously maintaining its relationship with an older, purer authenticity. Emphasizing the subtle, local and global aspirations within the Salafist method, Global Salafism investigates the movement like no other study currently available.
