Islam and Resistance in Afghanistan by Olivier Roy

Book Description

In this new edition, Olivier Roy expands his penetrating study of the history, ideology and structures of the Afghan resistance movement to mid-1989. He examines the evolution of the military and political situation inside Afghanistan during the last years of the Soviet presence and discusses relations between the Afghan resistance and the Islamic fundamentalist movement. The situation created by the Soviet withdrawal from Afghanistan is also explored, and in a new conclusion Professor Roy assesses to what extent the war has altered the traditional fabric of Afghan society.

Books By Author Olivier Roy

Saving the People by Olivier Roy Saving the People, Hardback (September 2016)

Critical look at the new wave of right-wing populist movements that are using religion to mobilise people

Revival of Islam in the Balkans by Olivier Roy Revival of Islam in the Balkans, Hardback (July 2015)

This book shifts analytical focus from macro-politicization and securitization of Islam to Muslims' choices, practices and public expressions of faith. An empirically rich analysis, the book provides rich cross-country evidence on the emergence of autonomous faith communities as well as the evolution of Islam in the broader European context.

Religious Conversions in the Mediterranean World by Olivier Roy Religious Conversions in the Mediterranean World, Hardback (August 2013)

While globalization undermines ideas of the nation-state in the Mediterranean, conversions reveal how religion can unsettle existing political and social relations. Through studies of conversions across the region this book examines the challenges that conversions represent for national, legal and policy ways of dealing with religious minorities.

Holy Ignorance by Olivier Roy Holy Ignorance, Hardback (November 2010)

Instead of freeing the world from religion, secularization has encouraged a kind of holy ignorance to take root. This book explores the options available to powers that hope to integrate or control these groups; and whether marginalization or homogenization will further divide believers from their culture.
