As the wave of popular unrest toppled autocratic rulers across the Middle East and North Africa, many in the West watched with growing concern as Islamists came to power. The continued prominence of Islam in the struggle for democracy in the Muslim world has confounded Western democracy theorists who largely consider secularism a prerequisite for democratic transitions. Kamran Bokhari and Farid Senzai offer a comprehensive view of the complex nature of contemporary political Islam and its relationship to democracy. Offering a useful theoretic framework, classification of Islamists, and rich historical context, Political Islam in the Age of Democratization provides a compelling and insightful analysis into Islamism and the role that religion will likely play in any future Muslim democracy.
