The 1979 Iranian Revolution brought worldwide attention to Islamic fundamentalism, a religious and political movement born in the 1920s, when Muslim thinkers proposed militant Islam as a weapon against European domination. Inspiring today's jihadist terror groups, Islamic fundamentalism has replaced Communism as the ideology Western political leaders cannot ignore.
"...provides over 200 pages documenting the roots, nature and rise of Islamic fundamentalist thought in the world. From the organizations involved in its promotion to the rise of Islamic fundamentalist thought around the world and surveys of individual countries which became Islamic, this provides an excellent overview."
