Islam, Democracy and the State in Algeria by Michael Bonner
Book DescriptionModern Algeria has been, in many ways, a harbinger of events and trends that have affected the Arab and Muslim worlds. The country's bold experiment in democratization broke down in the early 1990s, largely over the question of whether the Islamic Salvation Front (FIS) should be permitted to come to power following its victories in local, regional, and national elections. A devastating civil war followed. Now that order has been restored and the country has a new government, questions about governance, Islam and international relationships are once again at the top of Algeria's political agenda. How these issues are resolved will not only determine Algeria's future, but will also have important implications for other states in North Africa and the western Mediterranean. This book was previously published as a special issue of the Journal of North African Studies.

Jihad in Islamic History, Paperback (July 2008)
What is jihad? Does it mean violence, as many non-Muslims assume? Or does it mean peace, as some Muslims insist? This book focuses on the early history of jihad, shedding light on the controversies over jihad. It shows that those who argue that jihad means only violence or only peace are both wrong.
