9781466697317: Islamic Economy and Social Mobility: Cultural and Religious Considerations

In an era of globalization and cross-cultural awareness, an interest in the relationship between economics and religion, politics, and social behavior is alive and well. In particular, the Islamic economy has become a focal point of interest for economists and government leaders around the world interested in understanding the relationship between religion and economics among primarily Islamic regions.

Islamic Economy and Social Mobility: Cultural and Religious Considerations analyzes the social, cultural, religious, and political implications of the Islamic economy at the global level. Highlighting the foundations upon which Islamic ideology is formed and how it impacts socio-cultural and economic systems both within and outside of primarily Islamic regions, this publication is an ideal reference source for economists, sociologists, international relations professionals, researchers, academics, and graduate-level students.

Review:

...a much-needed resource that will help Western Christian as well as Islamic readers to gain perspective on their differences and similarities, on where they've come from and where they presently are. [...] Not least, this book sheds new and needed light on the complex of relations, both positive and negative, between the cultures, politics and economies of mid-Eastern Islamic countries on the side, and the United States and Israel on the other. --Harold J. Bershady, Ph.D., University of Pennsylvania

The present work is unique in its scope and findings in both the fields of Middle East studies, and in the wide range of works on Islamic studies, history, politics and economics. The breathtaking vista of subjects studied from medieval Islamic times and Arab-Persian relations and literary production to the modern period of the Iranian/Islamic revolution and the Arab Spring surely will stir colleagues and general readership alike. Its singular virtues are twofold: a bold assessment of the Arab and Iranian worlds' successes and failures, and the comparative forays into the West versus Middle East and Asian development patterns, past and present. This is a seminal work worth reading. --Dr. Thomas M. Ricks, former Villanova University Social and Cultural Historian of the Middle East

Marrying the functionalist view of stratification with the Weberian theory of action, Shahpari and Hodjat interrogate the complicated ways in which Muslim identity has interacted with politico-economic challenges of the West as well as with the cultural aspects of modernity in this global age. They do so by taking the reader through the subjective and objective layers of Mulslim identity, history, and geography. A sophisticated historical sociology anchored in synthetic nature of interactions between the East and the West. --Ali Akbar Mahdi, Ph.D., California State University Northridge, US
