By viewing Islamic fundamentalism as a reactive challenge to modern civilizations and political structure, Dr. Choueiri presents a striking analysis of how and why Islamic values have become such a potent contemporary political force, and sheds new light on a much-misunderstood situation.This book offers a rigorous definition of Islamic fundamentalism by linking its connotations to the historical background of Muslim traditions.
