Jansen analyzes the militancy of Islam from 1800 to the present, emphasizing its resurgence in the last decade. He shows us the traditionalists such as the Ayatollah Khomeini of Iran and General Zia of Pakistan wo want to take Islam back to strict adherence to the precepts of the Koran, the men of religion anxious to maintain the status quo, and the reformers trying to adept the faith to the demands of the modern world. The book concludes with a survey of the many views of what a modern Islamic order should be and an assessment of Islam`s future in the late 20th Century.
