Muslim travellers : pilgrimage, migration, and the religious imagination by Dale F Eickelman( )

31 editions published between 1990 and 2013 in English and held by 1,908 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Focusing on travel in Muslim societies from Malaysia to West Africa to Western Europe from the first centuries of Islam to the present, the contributors to this edition investigate the role of religious doctrine in motivating travel. While pilgrimage is usually seen as travel with a uniquely religious purpose, this exploration of the role of travel in Muslim societies and in Islamic doctrine shows that other forms of travel--for learning, visits to shrines, exile, and labor migration--also shape the religious imagination. Conversely, travel for specifically religious purposes often has important economic and political consequences. -- The contributors explore the transnational and local significance of pilgrimage and migration, showing how these journeys heighten a universal sense of 'being Muslim' while also inspiring the redefinition of the frontiers of sect, language, territory, and nation. In this way, encounters with Muslim 'others' have been as important in shaping community self-definition as encounters with European 'others.' -- Linking pilgrimage and migration to issues such as class, ethnicity, and gender, Muslim Travellers will be of special value to students of history and anthropology and to those in cross-disciplinary courses such as Islamic civilization and world religions.

The Middle East : an anthropological approach by Dale F Eickelman( Book )

24 editions published between 1981 and 1989 in English and held by 1,038 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Middle East: An Anthropological Approach presents a cogent analysis of the great impact economic and political change imposes on the Middle East. Socio-political complexities inherent to this highly volatile region are thoroughly emphasized: political and religious authority; communal, national, and religious loyalties; family and personal ties shaping Middle Eastern societies and cultures. -- Back cover
Muslim politics by Dale F Eickelman( Book )

26 editions published between 1996 and 2004 in English and held by 922 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this updated paperback edition, Dale Eickelman and James Piscatori explore how the politics of Islam play out in the lives of Muslims throughout the world. They discuss how recent events such as September 11 and the 2003 war in Iraq have contributed to reshaping the political and religious landscape of Muslim-majority countries and Muslim communities elsewhere. As they examine the role of women in public life and Islamic perspectives on modernization and free speech, the authors probe the diversity of the contemporary Islamic experience, suggesting general trends and challenging popular Western notions of Islam as a monolithic movement. In so doing, they clarify concepts such as tradition, authority, ethnicity, protest, and symbolic space, notions that are crucial to an in-depth understanding of ongoing political events."--Jacket
New media in the Muslim world : the emerging public sphere( Book )

20 editions published between 1999 and 2003 in English and held by 852 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This second edition of a widely acclaimed collection of essays reports on how new media - fax machines, satellite television, and the Internet - and the new uses of older media - cassettes, pulp fiction, the cinema, the telephone, and the press - shape belief, authority, and community in the Muslim world. The chapters in this work, including new chapters dealing specifically with events after September 11, 2001, concern Indonesia, Bangladesh, Turkey, Iran, Lebanon, the Arabian Peninsula, and Muslim communities in the United States and elsewhere. The extent to which today's new media have transcended local and state frontiers and have reshaped understandings of gender, authority, social justice, identities, and politics in Muslim societies emerges from this timely and provocative book. -- Publisher
Moroccan Islam : tradition and society in a pilgrimage center by Dale F Eickelman( Book )

18 editions published between 1976 and 1981 in English and Arabic and held by 638 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is one of the first comprehensive studies of Islam as locally understood in the Middle East. Specifically, it is concerned with the prevalent North African belief that certain men, called marabouts, have a special relation to God that enables them to serve as intermediaries and to influence the well-being of their clients and kin. Dale F. Eickelman examines the Moroccan pilgrimage center of Boujad and unpublished Moroccan and French archival materials related to it to show how popular Islam has been modified by its adherents to accommodate new social and economic realities. In the course of his analysis he demonstrates the necessary interrelationship between social history and the anthropological study of symbolism. -- Publisher description

Knowledge and power in Morocco : the education of a twentieth-century notable by Dale F Eickelman( Book )

20 editions published between 1985 and 1992 in English and Arabic and held by 478 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This intensive social biography of a rural Moroccan judge discusses Islamic education, the concept of knowledge it embodies, and its communication from the early years of colonial rule in twentieth-century Morocco to the present. The work sensitively combines the outlooks and perceptions of the author and those of the shrewd and reflective Abd ar-Rahman, supplementing our knowledge of resurgent militant Islamic movements by describing other popularly supported Islamic attitudes toward the contemporary world."--Publisher description
Religious knowledge, authority, and charisma : Islamic and Jewish perpspectives by Daphna Ephrat( )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 460 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The issue of religious authority has long fascinated and ignited scholars across a range of disciplines: history, anthropology, the sociology of religion, and political science. Religious Knowledge, Authority, and Charisma juxtaposes religious leadership in premodern and modern Islam with examples from the Judaic tradition. By illustrating various iterations of authority in numerous historical and cultural contexts, this volume offers fresh insights into the nature of institutions of learning and other systems of establishing and disseminating authority, the mechanisms for cultivating committed adherents, and the processes by which religious leadership is polarized and fragmented. Contributors tease out the sources and types of authority that emerged out of the Sunni and Shi?i milieu and the evolution of Muslim elites who served as formulators and disseminators of knowledge and practice. Comparative insights are provided by the examination of ideological and historical developments among Jewish sages who inculcated similar modes of authority from within their traditions. The rigorous exploration of the dynamic interface of knowledge and power in Islam and Judaism serves to highlight a number of present tensions common to both religions. By intertwining a historical span that traces trajectories of continuity and change, integrative discussion of cross-sectional themes, and comparative perspectives, this volume makes a distinct contribution."--
Africa and the Gulf region : blurred boundaries and shifting ties( )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 165 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The ties that bind Africa and the Gulf region have deep historical roots that influence both what Braudel called the longue durée and the short-term events of current policy shifts, market-based economic fluctuations, and global and local political vicissitudes. This book, a collaboration of historians, political scientists, development planners, and a biomedical engineer, explores Arabian- African relationships in their many overlapping dimensions. Thus histories constructed from the "bottom up"--Records of the everyday activities of commerce, intermarriage, and gender roles - offer an incisive complement to the "top down" histories of dynasties and the elite. Topics such as migration, collective memory, scriptural and oral narratives, and contemporary notions of food security and "soft" power pose new questions about the ties that bind Africa to the Gulf."

6 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 145 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Over the last half-century, the GCC states have invested on a huge scale in higher education, but the stated commitment to internationally recognized excellence has also to come to terms with tradition._x000B_ These pressure points are examined here in a number of comparative studies, and cover among other topics: higher education as soft power to promote regional or global influence, intense reliance on foreign instructors, citizen entitlements, badu and hadar divisions, gender separation, different visions of language of instruction, marginalization of foreign students and faculty outside
Islam and Humanity : First English Translation of Al-Islam Wa-L-Insan by Muḥammad Shaḥrūr( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 119 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""Explain the Qur'an by the Qur'an""This new book by Mohammed Shahrour is about the implications of a contemporary reading of the Qur'an. ""We must re-examine the prior reading of religion and introduce Islam from its original source, the authoritative revelation, on the basis of a contemporary reading that takes into account the level of knowledge of the 21st century and the scientific and ethical development that have been achieved."" Shahrour employs the rules of what he calls tartīl and non-synonymity. As themes of the Qur'an are scattered across Suras, tartīl means to take verses related

Musaylimah : an anthropological appraisal by Dale F Eickelman( )

4 editions published in 1967 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One of the most significant and least analyzed aspects of the Riddah or "apostasy" which occurred in the last years of Muhammad's life and in the caliphate of Abu Bakr (632-634) is the fact that the most adamant opposition to the incipient religious-economic political system of Islam in all regions of Arabia except al-Bahrayn and 'Uman was directed by the so-called "false prophets," four of whom are known by name: al-Aswad (Yemen), Tulayhah b. Khuwaylid (B. Asad), Sajah (B. Tamim), and Musaylimah b. habib (al-Yamamah). The most significant of these "false prophets," and the one on which the most infonnation is available, ls Musaylimah. With an army of allegedly 40,000 men he crushed two Muslim armies before being overwhelmed by a third, under the Muslim general Khalid b. al-Walid. Some accounts report that even in the victorious third battle, enough Qur'an reciters were lost to cause concern over the perpetuation of the Qur'an. Both V.V. Barthold and W. Montgomery Watt have assessed Musaylimah's movement to have been the most serious threat faced by the nascent Isiamic state. With the exception of V.V. Barthold, scholars dealing with the first half of the seventh century in Arabia have neglected to examine in detail the source materials on Musaylimah's movement - its formation, its membership, its organization, and the question of why it offered such bitter resistance to incorporation in the Islamic movement even when military defeat was imminent. This study is intended to fill that gap in our knowledge as far as possible, by gathering and critically analyzing materials in the primary (and secondary) sources relevant to the study of Musaylimah. From these I hope to present an account of his movement as comprehensive and coherent as the sources will permit." --
