9780520236905: The Challenge of Fundamentalism: Political Islam and the New World Disorder

Long before the tragic events of September 11, 2001, Islamic fundamentalism was exerting a significant influence in nearly every corner of the world. Bassam Tibi, a widely recognized expert on Islam and Arab culture, offers an important and disquieting analysis of this particular synthesis of religion and politics. A Muslim and descendant of a famous Damascene Islamic scholar family, Tibi sees Islamic fundamentalism as the result of Islam's confrontation with modernity and not only--as it is widely believed--economic adversity. The movement is unprecedented in Islamic history and parallels the inability of Islamic nation-states to integrate into the new world secular order.

For this updated edition, Tibi has written a new preface and lengthy introduction addressing Islamic fundamentalism in light of and since September 11.

About the Author:

Bassam Tibi was born in Damascus and is currently Professor of International Relations at the University of Göttingen, Germany. He is the author of several books in English, including Islam between Culture and Politics (2001), Arab Nationalism (third edition, 1996), Conflict and War in the Middle East, 1967-1981 (new edition, 1997), and The Crisis of Modern Islam (1988).

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

From the Book: "Adequate Western policies, when earnestly pursued, as for example the solution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, can contribute to dismantling conspiracy perceptions and to averting the clash of the Islamic and Western civilizations. The Arab World, after all, has enough problems to solve within its own confines. It will be more beneficial for the Islamic states to come to grips with pending issues than to engage themselves in external confrontations like the perpetual one with the West. Such confrontations not only distract Muslims from doing their homework, they also threaten regional peace and world stability."
