Summary
"This is a provocative account of the ways in which Muslim identities have come to play an increasingly political role in recent years. Theoretically innovative, it shows how Islamic movements - despite the wide variety of their manifestations - are best understood as a continuation of political and cultural decolonization." "This study draws upon the full breadth of post-structuralist thought as a means of better understanding Islamism. As such, it is necessary reading for all those who are interested in the Muslim world - in both its state and diasporic forms - as well as academics concerned with questions of 'race' and place in a poststructuralist context."--BOOK JACKET
