Shaping Global Islamic Discourses : The Role of al-Azhar, al-Medina and al-Mustafa Paperback / softback
Edited by Masooda Bano, Keiko Sakurai
Part of the Exploring Muslim Contexts series
This empirically grounded study challenges the assumptions prevalent within academic as well as policy circles about hegemonic power of such Islamic discourses and movements to penetrate all Muslim communities and societies.
Through case studies of academic institutions the volume illustrates how transmission of ideas is an extremely complex process, and the outcome of such efforts depends not just on the strategies adopted by backers of those ideologies but equally on the characteristics of the receipt communities.
