Reformist voices of Islam : mediating Islam and modernity by Shireen Hunter( )

19 editions published between 2008 and 2015 in English and held by 2,148 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Islamic radicalism has commanded attention in recent years, to the neglect of more moderate voices and trends. This volume introduces the current generation of reformist thinkers and activists and the intellectual traditions they carry on. Regionally focused chapters cover Iran, the Arab East, the Maghreb, South Asia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Turkey, Europe, and North America. The book traces the roots of reformist thinking both in the Islamic tradition and as a response to the challenges of modernity, and identifies commonalities, comparisons, vulnerabilities, and trends of the modernizing movements
The future of Islam and the West : clash of civilizations or peaceful coexistence? by Shireen Hunter( )

Shireen Hunter provides a pragmatic analysis of relations between Islam and the West, marked by specific cases from the contemporary Islamic/Western divide. Her book gives a realistic and accurate assessment of the relative role of civilizational factors in determining the nature of the state and the prospects for Muslim-Western relations (i.e., whether they will be conflictual or cooperative). Hunter answers the question: Can an accommodation between Islam and the West take place in a gradual and evolutionary manner or will it happen only after conflict and confrontation? And, contrary to Hun

Modernization, democracy, and Islam by Shireen Hunter( )

15 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 1,194 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Islamic world has a poor record in terms of modernization and democracy.

Iran Divided : the historical Roots of Iranian Debates on Identity, Culture, and Governance in the Twenty-First Century by Shireen Hunter( )

14 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 771 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Iranian politics has been marked by sharp ideological divisions and infighting. These divides, kept largely out of public view until the 1990s, came to greater light with the contested 2009 presidential elections. To explain the diverse and complex forces that led to this event and that animate Iran's current fractured society and polity, author Shireen T. Hunter looks beyond the battle between the forces of reform and reaction, democracy and dictatorship, and considers the historic forces that created the conditions faced by Iran since the revolution. Iran Divided: The Historic Roots of Iranian Debates on Identity, Culture, and Governance in the 21st Century explains historical and political factors and their relevance to Iran today, shedding light on the forces behind Iranian politics and society. This book discusses: historical roots of Iran's current divisions and debates; Iran versus Islam; secularism versus religion; constitutionalism versus Islamic government; fundamental issues of identity, culture, and governance; aging of the revolutionary coalition; development of new elites; experiences of the Islamic republic; and new international conditions moving the country beyond old divides and ideological rifts toward a new national consensus. A comprehensive survey, the book will be an indispensable tool to any student seeking to understand the Islamic Republic of Iran and its standing in the world today.--Provided by publisher

Islam, oil, and geopolitics : Central Asia after September 11 by Elizabeth Van Wie Davis( )

4 editions published between 2006 and 2010 in English and held by 510 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Once an obscure and little-known region, Central Asia has become an important test of America's ability to consistently promote global liberal change, of Russia's true foreign policy agenda, and of China's readiness to translate economic power into political influence. Terrorism, economics, and politics all converge in this strategic region, with important implications for Asia and the world. A set of international contributors focuses on three important issues that are usually_and unfortunately_analyzed separately: Islamic political issues, energy security, and geopolitical maneuvering.

Islam and human rights : advancing a U.S.-Muslim dialogue by Shireen Hunter( Book )

10 editions published between 2000 and 2015 in English and held by 409 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"These state-of-the-art essays represent a major advance in the conversation on Islam and human rights. With an innovative blend of historical, conceptual, and geopolitical perspectives, Islam and Human Rights claims a distinct place for itself by its well-integrated coverage of all relevant issues ... Invaluable to scholars and policymakers alike."--Peter Mandaville, Director, Center for Global Studies, George Mason University. "The distinguished authors dispassionately analyse an emotive subject and offer a constructive guide to how Muslims themselves can advance a progressive agenda and the United States can reconcile its interests and ideals ... Speaks thoughtfully to the concerns of policymakers, journalists, and the informed public."--James Piscatori, Fellow, Oxford Centre for Islamic Studies. In the last few years, issues related to human rights, including encouraging the democratization of Muslim societies from the Middle East to Southeast Asia, have acquired great importance in shaping the character of U.S.-Muslim relations and U.S. policy toward Muslim countries. An important impetus behind this development were the tragic events of 9/11, which demonstrated the destructive potential of militant groups that use a distorted interpretation of Islam as justification for their actions. These events also led to a greater realization by the United States--and the West--that a lack of democracy and lack of respect for human rights have been contributory factors to the rise of militant Islam. Consequently, in its approach toward the Muslim world, the United States has emphasized the themes of human rights and democracy. Within the Islamic world, too, both secular and moderate Islamists have begun focusing on issues related to human rights. Although many conservative Muslims believe that Islam is incompatible with Western notions of democracy and human rights, reformist Muslim thinkers and activists maintain that a proper reading of Islamic injunctions and the ethical values underpinning those injunctions shows there is no such incompatibility. Complicating the debate is the fact that many Muslims --secular as well as conservative and reformist -- doubt the seriousness of the U.S. commitment to the cause of human rights and democracy in the Muslim world, believing that the United States applies human rights' standards selectively to suit its strategic and economic interests. Irrespective of the validity of these charges, they are part of the context of the U.S.-Muslim dialogue on human rights. And it is this complex dialogue that this volume seeks to advance
The transcaucasus in transition : nation-building and conflict by Shireen Hunter( Book )

9 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 388 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since this book was completed in mid-1994 there have been a number of significant developments in the Transcaucasus and its immediate neighbourhood. Surat Husseinov has been ousted from power in Azerbaijan. The government in Armenia has clamped down harshly on the Dashnaks. The Chechen crisis erupted, forcing Russia to focus even more attention on what was happening across its southern borders. The debate about the route or routes along which Azeri oil should be piped to the West has also become more heated. In spite of the pace of events in the Transcaucasus Hunter has written a book which should enjoy a long shelf-life. The reader is able to gain a clear understanding of what occurred in Armenia, Azerbaijan and Georgia in the final years of the Gorbachev era and in the first years of these states' independence after 1991. This background knowledge will enable the reader to make more sense of the most recent complicated twists and turns in the politics of the Transcaucasus region. -- From (Sep. 15, 2013)

God on our side : religion in international affairs by Shireen Hunter( Book )

8 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 233 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This timely book offers an accessible introduction to religion in international affairs. Shireen T. Hunter highlights the growing importance of religion in politics and analyzes its nature, role, and significance. She places the question of religion's impact on global affairs in the broader context of state and nonstate actors, weighing the factors that most affect their actions. Through the lens of three compelling and distinctive case studies--Russia's response to the Yugoslav crisis, Turkey's reaction to the Bosnian war, and Europe's policy toward Turkish membership in the EU--Hunter demonstrates that religion increasingly shapes international affairs in significant and diverse ways. Her book is essential reading for anyone needing a better understanding of why and, more important, how, religion influences the behavior of international actors and thus the character of world politics -- Provided by publisher
