The author perceives the resurgence of Islamic fundamentalism as a defensive cultural response to structural changes in the global political and economic order. He contends that before Islamic countries can participate on an equal footing with Western industrialized countries, Islam must be de-politicized and must accept the concepts of intellectual pluralism and secularism.
