In this timely book, Marranci critically surveys the available theories on Islamic fundamentalism and extremism. Rejecting essentialism and cultural reductionism, the book suggests that identity and emotion play an essential role in the phenomenon that has been called fundamentalism.
GABRIELE MARRANCI is Lecturer in the Anthropology of Religion at the School of Divinity, History and Philosophy, University of Aberdeen. He is author of Jihad Beyond Islam and Anthropology of Islam (forthcoming).
