Modernist Islam, 1840-1940 by Charles Kurzman

Book Description

Modernist Islam was a major intellectual current in the Muslim world during the 19th and 20th centuries. Proponents of this movement typically believed that it was not only possible but imperative to show how "modern" values and institutions could be reconciled with authentically Islamic ideals. This sourcebook brings together a broad range of writings on modernist Islam from across the Muslim world. It makes available for the first time in English the writings of many of the activists and intellectuals who made up the early modernist Islamic movement. Charles Kurzman and a team of section editors, each specializing in a different region of the Islamic world, have assembled, translated, and annotated the work of the most important of these figures. With the publication of this volume, an English-speaking audience will have wider access to the literature of modernist Islam than did the makers of the movement themselves.

Missing Martyrs by Charles Kurzman Missing Martyrs, Hardback (August 2011)

Why are there so few Muslim terrorists? With more than a billion Muslims in the world--many of whom supposedly hate the West and ardently desire martyrdom--why don't we see terrorist attacks every day? Where are the missing martyrs?

Democracy Denied, 1905-1915 by Charles Kurzman Democracy Denied, 1905-1915, Hardback (October 2008)

Proposes that the collective agent most directly responsible for democratization was the emerging class of modern intellectuals, a group that had gained a global identity and a near-messianic sense of mission following the Dreyfus Affair of 1898.

Unthinkable Revolution in Iran by Charles Kurzman Unthinkable Revolution in Iran, Paperback (September 2005)

A top-secret CIA analysis in October 1978 concluded that the Shah of Iran would remain on the throne for the foreseeable future. 100 days later he was overthrown by a popular and largely peaceful revolution.

Liberal Islam by Charles Kurzman Liberal Islam, Paperback (December 1998)
