This ground-breaking book provides a unique insight into resurgent Islam from the standpoint of sociology.

Clearly written, and jargon free, the book aims to create a more comprehensive and balanced understanding of recent Islamic resurgence. Amongst the many themes explored, the book brings together in a single theoretical framework debates on the diversity of Islam, moderate and radical forms of Islamic belief, secularisation, the role of education and socialisation, the impact of globalization processes, and Islamic terrorism and its causes.Resurgent Islam provides a genuinely refreshing sociological alternative to the many politically loaded arguments on Islam and the West.

As such, it encourages deeper reflection on the causes of the current religious resurgence and associated conflicts.The book will be essential reading for students across the social sciences, and for anyone seeking to understand how Islam has risen to prominence in local, national, and global contexts.
