Law and power in the Islamic world by Sami Zubaida( )

29 editions published between 2003 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 1,375 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is an original contribution to the debates surrounding Islam and ideas of modernity. Starting from modern concerns, it examines the origins and evolution of the Shari'a (Islamic law), and the corpus of texts, concepts and practices in which it has been enshrined. Sami Zubaida considers key historical episodes of political accommodations and contests between scholars and sultans. Drawing on modern examples, mainly from Egypt and Iran, Zubaida explores how the Shari'a has evolved and mutated to accommodate the workings of a modern state by examining the reforms of the 19th and 20th centuries and the politics of the contemporary world
Beyond Islam : a new understanding of the Middle East by Sami Zubaida( )

17 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 1,063 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sami Zubaida draws on a distinguished career's worth of experience trying to understand the region to address the fundamental question in Middle East studies: what is the Middle East? He argues that to see it through the prism of Islam, as it is conventionally viewed, is to completely misunderstand it
Islam, the people and the state : essays on political ideas and movements in the Middle East by Sami Zubaida( Book )

53 editions published between 1988 and 2010 in English and held by 774 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Sam Zubaida unpicks the phenomena which have come to define the Middle East in popular imagination: radical religious movements like the Muslim Brotherhood, authoritarian dynasties like the Sauds, anti-Western demagogues like Iran's Mahmoud Ahmadinegad. He shows that, far from being an expression of the 'essential' character of an 'Islamic' region, they are produced by a series of historical, cultural and economic processes. He highlights the historical, religious and cultural diversity of the region, and argues persuasively against viewing it through the prism of Islam. He shows that movements such as Hezbollah and Hamas are not a rejection of modernity but a part of it. In a new chapter, he probes the 'Islamisation' of the region which is alleged to have taken place in recent years and argues that a superfical increase of religious symbols in public life masks a more fundamental and irreversible process of secularization."--Jacket

Culinary cultures of the Middle East( Book )

20 editions published between 1993 and 2000 in English and held by 292 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This pioneering book explores the culinary cultures of the Middle East in a variety of contexts. Written by specialists from different disciplines - history, sociology, geography, anthropology and literature - it covers a wide geographical area, from Central Asia to Morocco." "Diverse culinary cultures are revealed as overlapping variations on common themes, historically developed and diffused by successive syntheses effected from imperial centres of rule and civilization. These common themes are now being shaped by the processes of modernity: nation-states, mass communications, the industrialization and commercialization of food production, tourism, migrations and the 'invention of tradition'. The contributors discuss various aspects of these historical and contemporary processes, including likely origins and diffusions of ingredients and dishes, changes in food production and eating habits, contemporary revivals of traditional cooking, literary representations of food and drink, and the class, gender and communal dimensions to food." "The book is a contribution to the growing body of research and writing on food in history and the social sciences, and provides material for a comparative perspective in the field"--Jacket

Food, politics, and society : social theory and the modern food system by Alejandro Colás( Book )

5 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 198 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Food and drink has been a focal point of modern social theory since the inception of agrarian capitalism and the industrial revolution. From Adam Smith to Mary Douglas, major thinkers have used key concepts like identity, exchange, culture, and class to explain the modern food system. Food, Politics, and Society offers a historical and sociological survey of how these various ideas, and the practices that accompany them, have shaped our understanding and organization of the production, processing, preparation, serving, and consumption of food and drink in modern societies. Divided into twelve chapters and drawing on a wide range of historical and empirical illustrations, this book provides a concise, informed, and accessible survey of the interaction between social theory and food and drink. It is perfect for courses in a wide range of disciplines"--Provided by publisher
