Challenge of Fundamentalism by Bassam Tibi
Book DescriptionLong before the tragic events of September 11, 2001, Islamic fundamentalism was exerting a significant influence in nearly every corner of the world. Bassam Tibi, a widely recognized expert on Islam and Arab culture, offers an important and disquieting analysis of this particular synthesis of religion and politics. A Muslim and descendant of a famous Damascene Islamic scholar family, Tibi sees Islamic fundamentalism as the result of Islam's confrontation with modernity and not only - as it is widely believed - economic adversity. The movement is unprecedented in Islamic history and parallels the inability of Islamic nation-states to integrate into the new world secular order. For this updated edition, Tibi has written a new preface and lengthy introduction addressing Islamic fundamentalism in light of and since September 11.

Sharia State, Paperback (June 2013)
This text examines the Islamist concept of political order. Islamists themselves have given it the name: 'the Islamic state'. This order is based on a new interpretation of sharia. The concept has been elevated to a political agenda. The sharia-state is analysed in the context of the 2011-uprising, dubbed Arab Spring, against authoritarian regimes.
