Description
Summary:This book is a radical piece of counter-intuitive thinking on the clash of civilizations theory and global politics. The author argues that after 9/11 we have not seen a new phase in a long running confrontation between Islam and the West, but that such cataegories have collapsed. The West is no longer a unified actor and Islam is ideologically exhausted in its confontation with colonialism. Rather we are seeing the emergence of the US as a lone superpower, and a confrontation between a form of imperial globalized capital and a new Islamic theodicy.
Introduction -- Resisting the empire -- The end of Islamic ideology -- Blindness and insight -- Islam and globalization -- The Shi'i passion play -- Liberation theodicy -- Malcolm X as a Muslim revolutionary -- Conclusion: Prolegomena to a future liberation theodicy
