Summary

This book examines the political environments, lives and works of those diverse 19th and 20th century Muslim thinkers who believed that Islam was capable of providing practical solutions to the problems of the modern world. It provides a balanced account of their contribution to contemporary revolutionary Islam and to political developments in countries from Morocco to Indonesia. A new introductory chapter included in this updated edition addresses these thinkers in the context of the extraordinarily changed circumstances confronting Islamic countries since 9/11.
