Though the media frequently cover tensions surrounding radical Muslim communities within Western countries, coverage and understanding of similar tensions within Muslim nations themselves are far more limited. This study of the Netherlands Scientific Council for Government Policy analyzes developments in Islamic beliefs, political activism, society and law in twelve Islamic countries since the 1970s. Dynamism in Islamic Activism is a penetrating, timely study that helps citizens and policy makers look beyond simplistic, stereotypical understandings of Islamic societies.
