Author: HUBAND, MARK.
Title: Warriors of the Prophet: The Struggle for Islam.
Description: Boulder Westview Press / Perseus Books, 1999. Reprint ed. Paperback small octavo, very good condition, remainder stripe. 228 pp. Drawing on his firsthand experiences, Mark Huband moves deep inside the contemporary fundamentalist Islamic movements of countries as diverse as Morocco and Afghanistan. He reveals how Western powers have contributed to the rise of Islamic movements by their earlier support of the Afghan Islamic resistance. Provides detailed accounts of his discussions with militant groups, Muslim scholars, and political opponents of the Islamic movements. He enriches these discussions by exploring their historical and intellectual framework. Provides details of the current crisis in Algeria, the disappointments of Arab nationalism and socialist experiments in Egypt, the social breakdown of Somalia in relation to the ideal of an Islamic way of life - and the disaffected youth in the Islamic movements of Morocco, Egypt, and elsewhere. The Islamic experiment and its relationship with the non-Islamic world is revealed in Sudan's experience since 1989. ISBN: 0813327814.
