Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0313299781, Hardcover)

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.

Following a historical overview of the Islamic fundamentalist movement and beliefs, individual essays examine the Society of the Muslim Brothers in Egypt, the movement led by the Ayatollah Khomeini in Iran, the Wahhabi brand of Islamic fundamentalism in Saudi Arabia, and Western perceptions of Islamic fundamentalism. The behavior of radical groups such as Hamas and Hezbollah is also considered. Biographical profiles of key Islamic fundamentalist leaders, a glossary of terms, and a selection of 10 primary documents—from the Quran to pronouncements by the Ayatollah Khomeini—explain the Islamic view and provide materials for discussion. This one-stop guide also includes a timeline, annotated bibliography, and a selection of photos that are ideal for student use.
