The Awakening of Muslim Democracy: Religion, Modernity, and the State

Jocelyne Cesari

2014

In this book Jocelyne Cesari explores the relationship between modernization, politics, and Islam in Muslim-majority countries. She contends that nation-building in these environments has produced national ideologies rooted in the politicization of Islam, rather than liberal democracies following the Western model. Cesari's historical examination covers the post-WWII period to the Arab Spring and informs the book's consideration of the role of Islam in contemporary Middle Eastern emerging democracies.
