'Roger Hardy is a BBC Overseas Service journalist who has worked on the Islamic world for more than 30 years. This familiarity seems to have affected his judgement or sense of proportion scarcely at all. He ranges from Egypt to Indonesia and from the founders of Islam to its interpreters today. Everywhere he finds the right man or woman to interview, follows up with a crystal-clear summary of the relevant background and rounds off with a shrewd conclusion. The result is scholarly, but scholarship without obfuscation. The Muslim Revolt is a valuable handbook for anyone who seeks to understand the Islamic world.'-The Times (London) 'A sensitive, well-informed and subtle reading of the Islamic revival.' -- Bernard Haykel, Professor of Near Eastern Studies, Princeton University 'Accessible and authoritative. It is hard to imagine a more reliable guide across the varied and complex terrains of political Islam.' -- Professor Peter Mandaville, George Mason University, author of Global Political Islam 'No journalist has studied the Islamic world more widely, for longer, or more thoughtfully than Roger Hardy. And no author has packed more wisdom into such a short, clear and readable book.' - Edward Mortimer, author, journalist and Fellow of All Souls, Oxford University 'The Muslim Revolt is the first book you should read if you want to discover and decipher the implications of political Islam. Roger Hardy's firm grasp of history and his long experience on the ground in the Middle East have given him the perspective essential to understanding what is happening today and is likely to happen tomorrow. His clear, concise writing makes it possible for the layman or, indeed, the expert to better comprehend, analyse and even empathise with these complex societies.' - Christopher Dickey Newsweek Paris Bureau Chief 'This admirably concise book by an experienced journalist takes us on a vivid and well-informed journey through various strands of political Islam in their different national and regional contexts - from Indonesia to Europe - and considers how less hostile relations between the West and Islam might be achieved. The Muslim Revolt successfully avoids the superficial and stereotypical renderings common in the mainstream media and makes effective and informative use of direct quotations by political Islamists - a rare and difficult feat.' Dr John Chalcraft, London School of Economics -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch .

Looking for the secular Muslim 2. Januar 2011
Von William Garrison Jr. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
"The Muslim Revolt: A Journey Through Political Islam" by Roger Hardy, (2010), small hardback, 230 pages. The author `worked as a Middle East and Islamic affairs analyst for the BBC World Service for over twenty years.' The author noted that Egypt seems to be a `malaise' today because "IN a much-debated phrase, Al-Ghazali and the religious scholars of his day [1400s] `closed the gates' of ijtihad" [reasoning] (p. 18) - essentially, Muslims stopped progressive/ scientific/ secular thinking. The author BRIEFLY reviews `modern' Islamists (Qutb, Banna) who argued against the secular/ liberal `westernization' of the Middle East. The author desires the `liberation', if not the `liberalization' of Islam - just enough to curtail the power of the stifling anti-secularists imams. The author interviews several Middle East scholars who want to liberalize the region by reducing the sharia-Islamist laws. The author reviews the Shia-Shia split since the Battle of Karbala, and the Shia overthrow of the Iranian shah in 1979. The author tries to explain how the conservative/ fundamentalist Islamists regained power over the reform-minded Khatami administration [it was Pres. George Bush's `fault' - because his `Axis of Evil' speech offended the conservative Shia!] (p. 53). The author reviews how "Pakistan is the only country created in the name of Islam" (59) with Jinnah (& Maududi), and how Gen. Zia ul-Haq Islamlicated it even more - shortly after Khomeini seduced Iran. The author reviews how the U.S. funded Pakistan to oppose the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan - and how the bin Laden versus Azzam split and assassination came to be. The author BRIEFLY reviews the origins of Wahhabism and the coup of Ibn Saud. While the book recounts some of the experiences of the author, it seems to be more of a pasting together of snippets of common-information from Wikipedia - I'm really trying to find the new originality of `substance' that the author has to provide. The author gives a BRIEF review as to how Ataturk ended the Ottoman empire and tried to de-Islamize Turkey, but now today the secularists are being pushed back by the Erbakan Islamists. The author briefly reviews the rise of Islamism in Indonesia-Malaysia during the 1990s. The author reviews the `Rushdie Affair' , the Danish Moontoons, and the growth of Londonistan. The author seems to be confused WHY Muslims living throughout Europe are not `integrating' or accepting the secular beliefs (i.e. becoming Westoxificated) of liberal Europe - he apparently doesn't see that the newly arrived Muslims want Europe to de-secularize by becoming Islamificated (180-184). For some unexplained reason the author maintains: "The mainstream [Muslim] wants to see the umma grow stronger vis-a-vis the West, but does not share the radical jihadi view of history as an unending conflict between believers and infidels" (200). This journalist-author SEES what is going on, but doesn't seem to realize how the Islamists' actions are tied in with the Islamic religion itself {for this understanding see Robert Spencer "The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam"}. Just too 'generic'.
