Description - Pioneers of Islamic Revival by Ali Rahnema

This book examines diverse 19th and 20th century Muslim thinkers who believed that Islam could provide practical solutions to the problems of the modern world. It gives a balanced account of their contribution to revolutionary Islam and to political developments. Their writings and political activity are considered, explaining the roots of movements as diverse as the Muslim Brotherhood, the radical Iranian clergy and the militant Shi'i of Lebanon. The major new introductory chapter puts these still hugely influential thinkers and movements in the context of radically changed circumstances of Islamic countries internally and internationally since 9.11. Exploring the dangers of any Western-Islamic standoff where both Muslim and Christian elements are misusing the religions they ostensibly espouse.
