Globalisation or Recolonisation?

The Muslim World in the 21st Century

Ali Mohammadi and Muhammad Ahsan

In this accessible and carefully researched text, the authors broach one of the most urgent issues thrown up by the process of contemporary globalisation – the future of the Muslim World. Their analysis probes the key material links between economic underdevelopment and

Western-Islamic cultural relations. This book is vital reading for anyone who wishes to understand the roots of the current high-profile tension in global politics and to think beyond these conflicts towards the task of building a just and peaceful global order.

Islam and the Environment

Edited by Harfiyah Abdel Haleem
