Editorial Reviews


"Professionals and practitioners."



"Jihad for Jerusalem is principally aimed at an IR audience, although IR students of the Middle East will find the book provocative in explaining/understanding the divide between the rhetorical excess of state actors and their actual choices with regard to foreign policy in the region. Furthermore, the diversity of the four cases gives the comparativist a tool to overcome the strictures of area studies. Although generally familiar to the specialist, the empirical detail in the case studies is nicely reworked in accordance with a theory of agency. Jihad for Jerusalem is a welcome addition to the social-scientific literature in IR and the Middle East."

Format: Hardcover
"Jihad for Jerusalem: Identity and Strategy in International Relations" by M.A. Muqtedar Khan (2004), English, hardback, 238 pgs. The author had taught at Adrian College in Michigan, and, he has apparently taken several classes regarding relationship theory. The author noted that Arabist "John Espositio, [is] my friend and mentor" (p. x). The author is concerned about the `ontological foundations of theoretical orthodoxy - rational-choice assumptions" and believes that "the struggle for paradigmatic domination has...taken an ugly turn in the area of comparative politics." Ugliness indeed. In the first several pages he starts discussing "IR", but, amazingly, he does NOT define what "IR" is! A reader has to guess that "IR" is related to the subtitle in his book: "International Relations"! Or, it could be maybe about "Identity" or "Interest" or "Interpretivist", as they are other "I" topics he is interested in.... Ugly thinking indeed. Anyway, he deduces that "The failure of IR theory, the rationalist as well as interpretivist, to anticipate the structural transformations in world politics." Whatever; he is going to write about this topic. To discuss his ideas, the author constructs a box-chart with low-medium-high aspects of rationality, identity, scientific, narrative, interpretive, structuralist, positivism, relativism, predictive- potential, as offered by scholars A. Wendt, N. Onuf, & F. Kratoschwil. Okay, you ask, `what does this have to do with Jerusalem?' - Fair question. Oh, this must be an `intellectual' book - the author has just quoted something from Immanuel Kant.Read more ›
