Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Heretofore, the study of the Middle East has focused almost exclusively on Islam and on the regime, especially on its nondemocratic aspects. It has done so at the expense of accounting fully for the forces of skepticism, liberty, and creativity that struggle against Islamic conformism and state hegemony. This volume examines how Middle Eastern peoples in the 19th and 20th centuries lived and flourished while trying to shape their political and religious surroundings outside the formal structures of established religion and the state.

Synopsis:

Traditionally, the study of the Middle East has focused on Islam and on the regime, without accounting for the contrary forces of scepticism, liberty, and creativity. This volume examines how Middle Eastern peoples in the past two centuries lived and flourished outside the structures of established religion and the state.

Synopsis:

How Middle Eastern peoples in the past two centuries lived outside the region's politico-religious structures.
