Islam Between Culture and Politics by Bassam Tibi
Book DescriptionBassam Tibi offers a radical solution to the problems faced by Islam in a rapidly changing and globalizing world. He proposes a depoliticization of the faith and the introduction of reforms to embrace secular democracy, pluralism, civil society and individual human rights. The alternative to this is the impasse of fundamentalism. The pivotal argument is that Islam is being torn between the pressure for cultural innovation and a defensive move towards the politicization of its symbols for non-religious ends.

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.
