Review quote

"Of all of the books which have recently appeared on modern Islam...few come close to being as insightful, worthwhile, and just plain enjoyable to read as this collection of essays."--Religious Studies and Theology"An excellent anthology of biographical articles portraying the lives and works of 20th century and contemporary leaders in Islamic revival and resurgence."--Henry T. Littlejohn, Seattle Pacific University"Very well conceived. Not only does it give the views of the leaders of Islamic resurgence in various modern Muslim states, but also Muslim and Western responses....A thought-provoking collection of essays by eminent scholars which will be very useful to students of modern trends in Islamic thought."--Abbas Hamdani, University of Wisconsin"Excellent examination of the phenomenon of 'resurgent, militant, or fundamentalist' Islam by some seventeen authors....Should be of interest to students of Islamic culture and religion, as well as to those concerned with 'political' Islam's international impact."--Ludwig W. Adameo, University of Arizona
