If u know much about Islamic political history, this work will certainly give you an "others" perspective to islamic politics. Although the work fails to stand at one point of view, it give much a good explanation of all the political movements in the muslim world.

This book provides an excellent introduction to Islamic political thought, from the beginning of the faith to the present day. It looks at political thought in the various Islamic polities, including Turkish, Iranian, and Arab countries. It is an excellent introduction, but was a little hard to follow, since I am unfamiliar with many of the authors and statesmen mentioned. Still, it provided an overview of political thought in a region often neglected by political theorists.

seperti buku-buku orientalis lainnya, buku ini dilengkapi dengan bagan yang betul-betul menjelaskan kehidupan para pemuka Islam secara kronologis.dari segi itu bisa dikatakan buku ini oke juga.

tapi, buku ini harus dibaca secara kritis, terutama pada penempatan ayat-ayatnya yang sebetulnya kurang sesuai sama konteks ketika ayat tersebut diturunkan (halah..gw kaya ngerti ajuaahhh..).

There is a fair chance that I am overrating the book because this is my introduction to the topic, but it organizes and presents the material clearly. It has 1400 years of thought, which means there is some condensing, but it covers the bedouins of the 7th century to the Ottomans of the 20th. It is comparative, informative, and well worth reading.

The most comprehensive compendium of Political Islam i have come across.A broad spectrum of ideas are covered in the book detailing the evolution of Politics in Muslim societies.The book is arranged in a chronological order to further simplify the progress of Islamic political thought for the reader.A magisterial work and a must read for anyone with a passing interest on Islam and its politics.
