Are today's radical Islamic groups restoring Islam to an earlier model of religiously inspired politics, as they claim, or are they introducing striking innovations? A leading scholar of the Muslim world investigates these issues in the context of the broad reaches of Muslim history.

John Voll

In a flowing and engaging style, L. Carl Brown has crafted a grand synthesis of the relationships between religion and political life in the Muslim world, revealing both the continuities with premodern times and the distinctive dimensions of modern Muslim experiences.
