Author: Peter Mandaville

May 14, 2020

The third edition of Islam and Politics by Senior Research Fellow Peter Mandaville is a comprehensive account of political Islam in the contemporary world. The book, published by Routledge, offers a broad introduction to all major aspects of the interface of Islam and politics while combining an accessible style with sufficient depth for the academic classroom. Drawing on insights from comparative politics and Islamic studies, this book explains the complex interaction between Islam, society, the state, and processes of globalization. Preserving the previous editions’ strong focus on key concepts from Islamic history as they relate to contemporary political Islam, this new edition includes coverage of important developments and updated country overviews from the Middle East, Central and South Asia, Southeast Asia, Europe, and North America.
