Perspectives on Politics and Society in the Muslim World

Megan Reif "Making Democracy Safe"
The list author says: "A list of fiction, films, and studies that are accessible, compelling reading from the perspective, for the most part, of people actually from the Muslim world or whose work reflects a deeper undestanding of the complexity of the problems facing many subgroups and classes within the extremely diverse nations and minority populations that make up the Muslim world. Although focused primarily on the countries with which I am familiar, many of the fictional and film narratives reflect larger trends common these places share in common due to their demographic, resource, institutional, and geopolitical circumstances. Many fiction writers in the Muslim world ruled shed more insight on politics and history than scholarly accounts from the region who do not express themselves as freely or than Western scholarly accounts constrained, often, by their outsider status as well as, in some cases in North Africa and the Middle East, a need to maintain one's continuing access to places where some research questions are off-limits due to government constraints on social science research and investigative journalism."
