Description - Resistance and Control in Pakistan by Akbar S. Ahmed
How can people in the West make sense of contemporary unrest in the Muslim world? Is Islamic fundamentalism to be understood purely in religious terms? In this extraordinary book one of the world's leading authority on Islam explains what is happening in the Muslim world and assesses the underlying causes. He does so by illuminating the social structure and the operative principles in the contemporary Muslim society. Resistance and Control in Pakistan has been revised to include a new, up-to-date preface, reconsidering this topic in the light of recent developments.
