9780199395057: Political Islam Observed

This book offers a framework for understanding the interaction between the academic disciplines "observing" contemporary political Islam and the individuals and communities being "observed" practicing it. Volpi investigates how different disciplinary approaches in the social sciences explain and understand their "Islamic" subject matter, revealing how political Islam is a phenomenon that each academic discipline analyses using its own dominant paradigms. He offers a multidisciplinary account of political Islam based on the insights provided by post-orientalism, international studies, sociology of religion, democratization studies, multiculturalism studies, security studies, and globalization studies. His book outlines the areas of convergence and the synergies between these approaches and highlights the gaps and misunderstanding that still exist between parallel narratives on Islamism.

About the Author:


Frédéric Volpi is Senior Lecturer in International Relations at the University of St Andrews and the author of Islam and Democracy.

Review:

Political Islam Observed turns the debate about Islam and politics on its head. By drawing our attention to the impact of disciplinary lenses on the production of knowledge about politics in Muslim societies, Frédéric Volpi teaches us to ask better questions about the nature and future of political Islam. This book will be essential reading for students and scholars of contemporary Islam and social science methodologies.

(Peter Mandaville, director, Center for Global Studies, George Mason University, and author of Global Political Islam)
