This book presents the first comprehensive survey of the multiple
versions of Islam propagated across geographical, political, and
cultural boundaries during the era of modern globalization. Showing
how Islam was transformed through these globalizing transfers, it
traces the origins, expansion and increasing diversification of
Global Islam - from individual activists to organizations and then
states - over the past 150 years. Historian Nile Green surveys not
only the familiar venues of Islam in the Middle East and the West,
but also Asia and Africa, explaining the doctrines of a wide
variety of political and non-political versions of Islam across the
spectrum from Salafism to Sufism. This Very Short Introduction will
help readers to recognize and compare the various organizations
competing to claim the authenticity and authority of representing
the one true Islam.
