Comments Jihad: The Trail of Political Islam

  1. Kepel provides a panoramic account of various incarnations of political Islam across the Arab and North African world outlining how and why events have unfolded as they did At the heart of his analysis are two main insights 1 Only when Islamist movements can united the devout bourgeoisie , the young urban poor the disinherited ones and the religious clerics can they achieve success Such an outcome is difficult to achieve given the tension inherent between these different groups though one notabl [...]

  3. An excellent history of Political Islam After reading Olivier Roy on the subject I had a good footing in the thinking and philosophical development of Political Islam, but was looking for a detailed history of the movement, especially in terms of how it evolved and played out in very diverse regions Kepel provides just that kind of detail I recommend both this and Roy s The Failure of Political Islam and think they dovetail together very well I d love to see an updated edition of Kepel s book s [...]


  4. El mejor libro que cay en mis manos para entender el g nesis del movimiento islamista radical en el mundo Claro y tremendamente documentado, de hecho es un cl sico dentro del g nero y est escrito por una de las autoridades mundiales en el tema.El hincapi para desarrollar todo el espectro del islamismo radical, se basa principalmente en los casos de Argelia, Egipto e Ir n nico pa s en el cual el islamismo radical efectivamente se hace con el poder y en el influjo e impacto que tuvo en ellos tanto [...]


  5. The author spent five years traveling the Islamic world and beyond for fieldwork and brings back a harvest of information and insights The book is no longer so current, but it gives you a valuable picture from a pivotal period The book is especially good for insights into life in the francofone Islamic world.


  6. Es un obra monumental El autor se ha dedicado a leer, estudiar y documentar todos los movimientos islamistas de casi todo el mundo Analiza por pocas estos movimientos en cada pa s o regi n, con especial hincapi en pa ses donde han prosperado Ir n, Afganist n, Egipto, Arabia Saud , Argelia, Sud n, Turqu a La tesis del autor puede resumirse en lo siguiente tras el abandono del arabismo, del socialismo y de otros ismos, lleg un momento de esplendor para el islamismo como soluci n para todos los mal [...]


  7. An incredibly detailed and wide ranging analysis of the rise and in the author s opinion fall of militant Islamism throughout the twentieth century From Algeria to Malaysia, in Palestine and Sudan, Kepel tracks the emergence of Islamism as colonial empires began to crumble, how and where they were able to gain control of governments, and how and why they failed often spectacularly and bloodily My biggest complaint, and this isn t really the author s fault, is that the book only goes up to the be [...]


  8. The French title sums this book up better then the English Jihad, the rise and decline of radical Islam Kepel details the rise and fall of violent political Islam across the Middle East His essential point is that violent groups, while representing a valid expression from the populace of change and something different, burns out their popular support through violent activity.


  9. I found it hard to track exactly what Kepel was saying he tended to summarize, and then go back in detail I would have preferred a narrative approach Overall, it does provide background on jihadi groups, but I think that there are better options out there.


  10. Thoroughly researched, but somewhat dry and confusing Also dated published just after 9 11 which seems to have been woven in as an afterthought and full of sadly overblown predictions of the demise of militant Islam.


  11. Very interesting read about Islamists and how they developed Very well written and readable However, he is French and that sometimes shows It is probably one of the most respected works on the subject.


  12. Good overall history of the social, economic, and political factors since WWII that gave rise to political Islam from Europe to Indonesia Only one problem he thinks Islamism peaked with the Afghan jihad and is now on its way out


  13. Libro fondamentale per capire l islam politico Ancor pi impressionante pensare che stato scritto prima del 2001.


  14. Informative, but it seemed to offer suggestions based on assumptions and not on facts specifically regarding the decline of islamist politics.



  15. Also, an extremely dense book but covered in excruciating detail what he believes was the rise and what was the fall of reactionaly jihadists.
