The Inevitable Caliphate?: A History of the Struggle for Global Islamic Union, 1924 to the Present

BY DR. REZA PANKHURST This highly recommended title can be purchased from Amazon. Book synopsis: While in the West ‘the Caliphate” evokes overwhelmingly negative images, throughout Islamic history it has been regarded as the ideal Islamic polity. In the wake of the “Arab Spring” and the removal of long-standing dictators in the Middle East, in which the dominant discourse appears to be one of the compatibility of Islam and democracy, reviving the Caliphate has continued to exercise the minds of its opponents and advocates. Reza Pankhurst’s book contributes to our understanding of Islam in politics, the path of Islamic revival across the last century and how the popularity of the Caliphate in Muslim discourse waned and later re-emerged.

Accountability in the Caliphate: Third Edition

This book is available from Amazon. A PDF of the book can be downloaded from here: Accountability in the Caliphate If one was asked to describe the Muslim world, dictatorship, tyranny and torture would pretty much sum up life in many Muslim countries today. Hopes of accountability (muhasabah), rule of law and justice seem a distant dream. In some countries, the level of cruelty inflicted upon the people easily rivals if not surpasses some of the worst oppression in history. Uzbekistan in Central Asia, while at the extreme end of the spectrum, is a sombre example of political life for many Muslims. In the 2000 elections the President of Uzbekistan Islam Karimov gained 91.9% of the vote. The sole opposition candidate Abdulhasiz Jalalov admitted he only entered the race to make it seem democratic and that even he voted for Karimov!1 Members of the Islamic political opposition have literally been boiled alive and thousands of Islamic activists continue to be imprisoned suffering unspeakable tortures.
