This book provides an in-depth account and analysis of Islamic fundamentalism today, and how it has an impact on Israel's relations with the Arab and Islamic worlds. In light of recent events, the book is important for the whole Western world, which now confronts revivalist Islam, both in the Middle East and Europe itself, and even in such far-flung fragments of European civilization as the United States and Australia. This book should be of great help for the West in developing a proper understanding of, and a strategy for dealing with, this movement. Co-published with the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs.
Raphael Israeli is a Professor of Islamic and Middle Eastern Affairs, as well as Chinese and Eastern Civilization, and currently Chairman of the East Asian Studies Department of the Hebrew University in Jerusalem.
