Description - The Political Thought of Sayyid Qutb by Sayed Khatab

This book takes a literary approach in its study of Sayyid Qutb, one of the most influential political thinkers for contemporary Islamists and who has greatly influenced the likes of Osama Bin Laden. Executed by the Egyptian state in 1966, his books continue to be read and his theory of jahiliyya 'ignorance' is still of prime importance for radical Islamic groups. Through an examination of his thoughts and theories the book explores the main concepts that are used by today's radical fundamentalist movements, tracing the origins, meanings and the development of such concepts. The book sheds light on Islamic radicalism and its intellectual origins by presenting new analysis on the intellectual legacy of one of the most important thinkers of modern Islamic revival.
