Islamist networks : the Afghan-Pakistan connection by Mariam Abou Zahab( Book )

20 editions published between 2002 and 2006 in English and held by 560 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Al Qaida was unable to realize its lethal potential until it found sanctuary in Afghanistan, where Osama bin Laden fled after being expelled from Sudan. But why was the network's sanctuary not attacked before September 2001, especially after the bombing of the U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania in 1998? Abou Zahab and Roy argue that the Taliban was part of a much wider radical Islamist network in the region, whose true center was Pakistan, not Afghanistan. Al Qaida, the Taliban, the Pakistani Deobandis - all of these groups are based in Pakistan, which continues to serve as the regional hub for Islamist movements and their terrorist offshoots." "This book investigates and explains the almost twenty-five-year gestation of these interlinked radical Islamist networks of Pakistan, Central Asia, and Afghanistan, out of which Al Qaida emerged. Taking into account the networks' divergent histories and doctrinal rifts, the authors lay bare the political contingencies that enabled these disparate Islamist movements to coordinate with the aim of attacking what became their common adversary: the United States."--BOOK JACKET

La constante "tribu", variations arabo-musulmanes by Laurent Bonnefoy( )

1 edition published in 2016 in French and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dès que l’on parle « tribu » à propos du monde arabo-musulman, les Occidentaux que nous sommes pensent charmes altiers de modes de vie révolus, mais aussi, dans le contexte actuel, trafics, oppression des femmes, arriération et incapacité d’atteindre la modernité. La persistance tribale serait, dans cette perspective, l’une des racines du mal-être et des conflits qui s’éternisent dans l’arc de crise allant de l’Afrique du Nord et Sub-saharienne à l’Afghanistan. À rebours, ce livre nous révèle les étonnantes capacités d’adaptation et de métamorphose de la tribu dans ces sociétés profondément fracturées ; stimulées par les contextes intérieurs, les tribus, toujours subordonnées, parviennent néanmoins à trouver place dans le jeu des acteurs économiques, politiques et militaires de la globalisation, conjuguant impact géopolitique et développement de ces logiques « glocales » dont la variété tisse désormais une partie de la planète

Sociologie politique de l'islam militant pakistanais contemporain by Mariam Abou Zahab( Book )

2 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in French and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Our research deals with Islamist groups which emerged in the 1980s and the 1990s in Pakistan, and particularly groups implicated in thez Sunni-Shia sectarian conflict. We assume that religion is only a pretext and that the conflict is the result of socio-economic tensions and of the rivalry between social groups competing for power at the local level. The security approach often dominant which highlights the instrumentalization of radical groups by the Pakistani State ignores the dynamics of a very complex society as well as the ideological framework and the historical continuity into which these groups inscribe themselves.We analyzed the dynamics and the causes of the violence through a study of the Sipah-e Sahaba Pakistan (SSP), a Sunni extremist group, in the context of Jhang (Punjab) using a framework borrowed from the social movement theory. This approach enabled us to build, from the Jhang paradigm, a model applicable to social dynamics in Pakistan. This model was applied to other movements : Shia groups, Pakistani taliban in the Tribal areas, Salafi groups and Afghan taliban

The Place and Role of Pakistan in the Sino-Pakistan-American Triangular Relations, 1991-2012 by Muhammad Asim Arif( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The need for research on the Sino-Pakistani-American diplomatic triangle is felt as the subject was never systematically researched before. The triangular relation is important for a multitude of reasons. Firstly, the region of influence and relevance of Pakistan is in an active geopolitical sphere where the contest for power status for the future is being vigorously played out. Secondly, China and the US are deeply involved with Pakistan and with the regions surrounding Pakistan. Thirdly, this strategic triangle encompasses at least three salient geopolitical regions, namely South Asia, Central Asia and the Middle East, thus pulling in, for the purview of this study, foreign policies and or internal matters of such important countries as India, Saudi Arabia, Iran and Afghanistan. Fourthly, the foreign policy decision-making by the Pakistanis involves the concerns and interests of both the Americans and the Chinese. Islamabad has the geopolitical reserve to influence the role and place of Washington and Beijing in the strategic regions of South Asia, Central Asia and the Middle East
