About this book

The continued prominence of Islam in the struggle for democracy in the Muslim world has confounded Western democracy theorists who largely consider secularism a prerequisite for democratic transitions. Kamran Bokhari and Farid Senzai offer a comprehensive view of the complex nature of contemporary political Islam and its relationship to democracy.

Reviews

“Bokhari and Senzai present a generally persuasive, informed, and nuanced conceptual framework for understanding different ‘Islamists’ behavior in relation to democracy’ and the different ways democracy  can be interpreted and operationalized within Islamic societies … . Overall, this book constitutes a must read for students of Muslim politics; it is an informative, resourceful, and easily comprehensible text for anyone who desires to understand political Islam today.” (Ravza Altuntaş-Çakır, Insight Turkey, insightturkey.com, December, 2015)
