ISLAM is more than a set of religious beliefs and practices. It is also a holistic civilizational force that encompasses the believer with a tradition that has profoundly significant historical roots. This tradition, in turn, forms an ideal that gives the pious Muslim a model for the good life that he or she is religiously required to realise. Thus, the good life and the good society cannot be found through the uncritical acceptance of all things modern or the simple imitation of a Western lifestyle. Rather, they are to be found in an understanding and adaptation, within a contemporary context, of the traditional values and worldview of a past time and place—especially the time of the founder of Islam, the prophet Muhammad and the uncorrupted society he established. This orientation is brought out in detail in this book and places it in a proper perspective. This is evident from the chapters, which include: • Historical of Islamic Fundamentalism. • History of Islamic Movements. • Islamic in Modern Society. • Islamist Ideology and Practice. • Modern Islamic Political Thought:Fundamentalism and Modernism. • Fundamentalist of Islamic Epistemology and Political Philosophy. • Islamist Societies and State Responses. • Islamic Fundamentalism in the Gulf. • Western Perceptions of Islamic Fundamentalism. • Discourse of Hasan Al-Banna on Shura, Democracy and the Islamic. • Discourse of Hasan Al-Turabi on the Islamic State and Democracy. • Bibliography and Index.
