Editorial Reviews

Review

"[Islamism] is an important book and a valuable contribution to the literature on political Islam . . . Daniel Varisco has done the field a service by launching the debate, and so have the editors by recording it."—Thomas Hegghammer, Journal of Islamic Studies


"For the present collection, editors Martin and Barzegar engaged the premier adversaries in that debate, Donald Emmerson of Stanford and Daniel Varisco of Hofstra, to offer their arguments, along with a variety of other scholars to give critical response."—P. S. Spalding Choice


"With its multi-vocal debates, this book has an edge and perspective that is fresh and necessary. No other book focuses so precisely, or so helpfully, on the use of the term 'Islamism' and its relationship to the analysis of violence linked with Islam." —Brannon Wheeler, United States Naval Academy


"This lively work will be a great help for anyone concerned with current debates between Islamic nations and the West. The book's active discussion of the terms 'Islamism' and 'Islamist' brings much needed attention to the degree that we rely on irresponsible rhetoric to discuss the Islamic world today."—William O. Beeman, University of Minnesota
