About this book

This book identifies a new Islamic form in Turkey: Muslimism. Neither fundamentalism nor liberal religion, Muslimism engages modernity through Islamic categories and practices. This new form has implications for discussions of democracy and Islam in the region, similar movements across religious traditions, and social theory on religion.

Reviews

"Neslihan Cevik has written a groundbreaking book on the social, religious, and political transformation of Islam in contemporary Turkey. The innovations represented by what she calls 'Muslimism' portend profound changes for Turkey and, quite possibly, other parts of the Islamic world. Theoretically grounded, empirically rich, and cogently written, this book is essential reading for all interested in the fate of Islam in late modernity." James Davison Hunter, Labrosse-Levinson Distinguished Professor of

Religion, Culture, and Social Theory, University of Virginia, USA

"With insight and nuance, Neslihan Cevik breathes fresh air into scholarship on Islam in Turkey. Showing the deficiencies of conventional categories, Cevik develops the concept of 'Muslimism' to understand how Muslims engage markets, party politics, and civic society by submitting them to Muslim sensibilities. This is a full-orbed treatment of economic, political, cultural, and theological structures; it thereby has significance beyond Turkey and is must reading for anyone interested in how religious groups engage global change." - George M. Thomas, Professor of Politics and Global Studies, Arizona State University, USA

"Few subjects are more important to today's geopolitics than the rise of political religion, whether in India, Turkey, or the USA. Turkey's strategic position as a European country that neighbors Iran, Iraq, and Syria makes the question of Islam and politics there particularly salient. Few better, or more subtle, guides to this phenomenon could be found than Neslihan Cevik's." Juan Cole, Richard P. Mitchell Collegiate Professor of History, University of Michigan, USA
