Overview

A remarkable drama is unfolding in the countries of North Africa ("the Maghrib") as militant Islamic movements challenge the existing political order. With the failure of North African leaders to resolve social and economic problems, the region is being rocked by a disenchanted public demanding more representative and responsive social systems. In the battle for grassroots support, Islamic movements have won the upper hand.

In Islamism and Secularism in North Africa, leading scholars from the United States, Europe, and North Africa explore the Islamic challenge. Drawing on political science, history, sociology, and anthropology, the contributors examine the relations among religion, the state, and political opposition movements in North Africa. Although the contributors show that the Islamic revival has been reenergized by acute corruption, political exclusion, and pauperization, they also argue that the Islamic movement in North Africa is historically rooted, and that the Islamist-secular divide reflects deep intellectual, political, and social differences that are not likely to disappear.
