Americanism is in the vanguard of modernity's advance, promoting capitalist markets and democratic institutions. In the absence of a renaissance or enlightenment, modernization in the Islamic world was painful and unsuccessful. This title argues that Islamists such as Osama bin Laden are the face of that reformation.
