9780199326280: Global Salafism: Islam's New Religious Movement

"Salafism" and "jihadi-Salafism" have become significant doctrinal trends in contemporary Islamic thought, yet the West has largely failed to offer a sophisticated and discerning definition of these movements. The contributors to Global Salafism carefully outline not only the differences in the Salafi schools but the broader currents of Islamic thought that constitute this trend as well. They examine both the regional manifestations of the phenomenon and its shared, essential doctrines. Their analyses highlight Salafism's inherent ambivalence and complexitites--the 'out-antiquing the antique' that has brought Islamic thought into the modern age while maintaining its relationship to an older, purer authenticity. Emphasising the subtle tensions between local and glocal aspirations within the "Salafi method", Global Salafism investigates the movement like no other study currently available.

Review:


"The first work of its kind on Salafism as a global phenomenon, this is an impressive collection of studies that question the received wisdom about the movement as much as they reveal the diversity of its religious and political motivations."--Faisal Devji, St Antony's College, Oxford University, and author of The Terrorist in Search of Humanity


"This timely volume is a most welcome addition to the emerging scholarly literature on contemporary Salafism. It is a significant contribution to the endeavour both to elucidate its defining characteristics, and to situate it in relation to other trends in contemporary Islamic thought and activism. Its particular value lies in its comprehensiveness--not only in terms of geographical scope, but in addressing the very diverse articulations and outcomes of the Salafi approach, from the apolitical to the militant. Highly recommended for anyone seeking an insight into the complex and expanding world of this key trend in the contemporary Islamic arena, it is also and invaluable teaching resource."--Suda Taji-Farouki, University of Exeter


"This is a unique book, the first of its kind to take the phenomenon of Salafism as a whole and address the task of its definition."--Stephen Ulph, Senior Fellow, the Jamestown Foundation, Washington, DC.


"This book is a stunning achievement and a major contribution to the study of contemporary Islam...The authors display a remarkable level of expertise on the topics discussed...The level of research is outstanding...This book should be required reading for anyone interested in contemporary Islamic activism.... It demands our attention, careful reading, deep engagement, and understanding."--Insight Turkey
