Why Muslims Rebel: Repression and Resistance in the Islamic World

Overview

Hafez (political science, U. of Missouri-Kansas City) argues that Muslim rebellions are generally not reactions to impoverishment or failed modernization, but defensive measures against predatory state repression that threatens the lives and organizational resources of the politically active. He focuses on Algeria and Egypt, but also compares other examples. Annotation (c)2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR

    Fair, Non-Sensational Book on Islam and Violence

    I read this book expecting another self-proclaimed 'expert' explaining why Muslims carried out the attacks of 9/11 and how Islam does not condone this type of behavior. Instead, I was suprised at the quality and fairness of research, which was neither an apology for Islamic violence nor a superficial description of militant Islamic groups. The author has done field research and uses Arabic sources to explain rebellions in Algeria, Egypt, Kashmir, Chechnya, Tajikistan, and Philippines. He also explains why rebellions often turn into violence against civilians. He uses social movement and terrorism theories, which can be jargon-laden, but overall his argument is clear and convincing. He concludes by making policy recommendations that go against the current policy of 'kill them all and let God sort them out.' This book is not an easy read, but it is much better than the plethora of books that have been written since 9/11.
