Islamist Networks: The Afghan-Pakistan Connection


Columbia University Press, 2004

Description

If you want to understand contemporary Islamism, you have to grasp the role of informal networks. For some analysts, simple theology suffices, for others, international linkages dominate. Few academics have tackled the ways in which human relationships, as much as ideological sympathies, underpin Islamism in South Asia. Whether illustrated by familial lines of succession among selected madrasah (Islamic school) principals, the strong friendships fostered by joint participation in Tablighi Jamaat missions, or the increasingly networked sharing of fatwas (Islamic legal pronouncements) through the internet, social connections are critical. This short but important study remains one of the best examples of social scientists investigating the provenance and vitality of informal networks in the context of Afghanistan, Pakistan, Central Asia and Kashmir. Given this, Mariam Abou Zahab and Oliver Roy's book remains deeply relevant for academics and policymakers
