Editorial Reviews

Review

"... concise, complete, and consistent."
Thierry DiCostanzo, H-Nationalism

Book Description

This book reflects upon the political philosophy of Muhammad Iqbal, a towering intellectual figure in South Asian history. The book studies Iqbal's critique of nationalist ideology, and his attempts to chart a path for the development of the "nation" by liberating it from the centralizing and homogenizing tendencies of the modern state structure. These were highly relevant and controversial issues during the years leading up to India's independence, and Iqbal frequently clashed with his contemporaries over his view of nationalism as "the greatest enemy of Islam." In rejecting post-Enlightenment conceptions of religion, he constructed his own particular interpretation of Islam that would provide solutions to all political, social, and economic ills. In many ways, his vision of Islam was ahead of its time, and since his death both modernists and Islamists have continued to champion his legacy.
