Summary

This comprehensive introduction explores the landscape of contemporary Islam. Written by a distinguished team of scholars, it:

  • provides broad overviews of the developments, events, people and movements that have defined Islam in the three majority-Muslim regions
  • traces the connections between traditional Islamic institutions and concerns, and their modern manifestations and transformations. How are medieval ideas, policies and practices refashioned to address modern circumstances
  • investigates new themes and trends that are shaping the modern Muslim experience such as gender, fundamentalism, the media and secularisation
  • offers case studies of Muslims and Islam in dynamic interaction with different societies.

Islam in the Modern World includes illustrations, summaries, discussion points and suggestions for further reading that will aid understanding and revision. Additional resources are provided via a companion website.
