xvii + 186pp, glossary, bibliography, index, light wear paperback extremities, a good copy. "Islam and the West presents a multi-layered approach to the relationship between Muslims and Western states. At the global level, it investigates the impact of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, along with the implications of the US led invasion of Iraq in March 2003, and examines transnational Islamic movements such as al-Muhjiroun. At the regional and state level, it analyses the situation within Muslims states: assessing the relative balance between orthodox, moderate and militant Islamic trends and suggesting appropriate policy options for empowering moderate Muslims. At the substate level the book focuses on the ideology and practice of Islamic militant groups like Lashkar-e-Toiba in Pakistan and Jemaah Islamiya in Indonesia. Islam in the West also looks at the reaction of Muslim communities in Australia to the negative interpretations of Islam and religiously motivated terrorism." Publisher's description.
