The revival and power of religious feelings among Muslims since the Iranian revolution presents a complicated and often perplexing picture of the politics of the Islamic world in the modern era. What are the ideas which have influenced the direction of these trends? In this book, which since its original publication has established itself as a seminal work, Hamid Enayat provides an answer by describing and interpreting some of the major Islamic political ideas. He also examines the concept of the Islamic state, and the Muslim response to the challenge of alien and modern ideologies such as nationalism, democracy and socialism. This classic work remains indispensable for an understanding of the current politics of the Muslim world.
