This book is an accessible and comprehensive account of political Islam in the twenty-first century. Drawing on insights from comparative politics and Islamic studies, it explains the complex interaction between Islam, society, the state, and processes of globalization. The book demonstrates that political Islam, far from being a monolithic phenomenon, varies considerably from country to country depending on its position in relation to society, the state, and the broader political environment. The book provides a portrait of Islam and politics through a combination of detailed case studies and country overviews that span the globe from the Middle East to Central and South Asia, Southeast Asia and Europe and North America―as well as a detailed account of the global jihadist movement. Engaging the debate on "post-Islamism" and the aftermath of Arab Uprisings, the book also provides a roadmap of possible futures for Islam and politics. Subjects covered include:

· history of Islam and politics and an overview of key concepts

· how political Islam interacts with the nation-state and the global economy

· a wide variety of global case studies

· profiles of key movements and individuals

Fully illustrated throughout, featuring maps, a glossary and suggestions for further reading, this is the ideal introduction to the crucial role of political Islam in the contemporary world.

About the Author:

Peter Mandaville is Professor of Government and Politics and Director of the Ali Vural Ak Center for Global Islamic Studies at George Mason University, USA. He is the author of Transnational Muslim Politics: Re-imagining the Umma and has also co-edited several volumes of essays. Research interests include the impact of globalization in the Muslim world, global political development, and post-Western international relations.

Review:

In Islam and Politics, Peter Mandaville accomplishes an extraordinary feat: the book is nuanced and substantive yet accessible for introductory audiences. From questions about jihad and state-sponsored Islamist to the relationship between global processes and local politics, Mandaville's clear-headed approach unpacks not only the phenomena of Islamist politics themselves, but also the powerful narratives about Islamism that themselves shape the direction of global politics.

Jillian Schwedler, Professor of Political Science at the City University of New York's Hunter College and the Graduate Center.

This work incisively examines a subject of intense public and policy interest. Ranging widely across issues and regions, Islam and Politics provides an unerring guide to Islamism and the impact of globalisation from above and protest from below. The analysis is always illuminating, the writing accessible and balanced.

James Piscatori, Professor of International Relations, Durham University, UK.
