Review:

'Serious interest in the politics of radical Islam dates from precisely Christmas 1978, when the pro-American Pahlavi dynasty in Iran came tumbling down. The academic form of that fascination consists in this book of 13 insightful case-studies of Muslim minorities and majorities worldwide. How do Muslims cope with political weakness in India, Israel, and the West? And in their own lands, have Muslims found their political identity?' - Shabbir Akhtar, Times Higher Education Supplement
