Beschreibung

'Upending scholarly claims of Islam's discursive continuity against secular modernity, Rock-Singer keenly details postcolonial Egyptian Islamic movements' profound contemporaneity - their affinities with the postcolonial state and non-Muslim revivals, their immersion in mass media, and much more. In reframing Islam and politics, Practicing Islam in Egypt illuminates the late modern 'return of religion' more broadly.' Emilio Ibrahim Spadola, Tufts University, Massachusetts

Autorentext
Aaron Rock-Singer is Visiting Assistant Professor in the Department of Near Eastern Studies at Cornell University, New York. He holds a Ph.D. in Near Eastern Studies from Princeton University, New Jersey.

Zusammenfassung
Following the ideological disappointment of the 1967 Arab-Israeli war, an Islamic revival arose in Egypt. Here, Rock-Singer looks beyond the artificial divide between state institutions and Islamic activists and melds social and intellectual history to show how Egypt's Islamic revival emerged, who it involved, and why it still shapes Egypt today.
