Islamic Fundamentalism


Islamic fundamentalism is a growing political factor in world affairs. This work, based on the most recent scholarship, provides both explanatory essays and ready-reference components. An expert on Middle East history, Davidson explains the Islamic fundamentalist worldview and the actions and aims of those who adhere to it. He also addresses Islamic fundamentalist attitudes toward democracy, violence, and women. Ready-reference components include a timeline of events, biographical profiles of key Islamic fundamentalist leaders, 10 primary documents explaining Islamic fundamentalist views, a glossary of terms, an annotated bibliography, and a selection of photos.
