A world without Islam by Graham E Fuller( Book )

23 editions published between 2008 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 1,117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book will reshape the way we think about Islam's relationship with the West. What if Islam never existed? To some, it's a comforting thought: no clash of civilizations, no holy wars, no terrorists. Here, political scientist and expert on the Muslim world Graham E. Fuller guides us through history, geopolitics, and religion to investigate whether or not Islam is indeed the cause of some of today's most emotional and important international crises. Fuller takes us from the birth of Islam to the fall of Rome to the rise and collapse of the Ottoman Empire. He examines and analyzes the roots of terrorism, the conflict in Israel, and the role of Islam in supporting and energizing the anti-imperial struggle. Provocatively, he finds that contrary to the claims of many politicians, thinkers, theologians, and soldiers, a world without Islam might not look vastly different from what we know today.--From publisher description

Turkey's Kurdish question by Henri J Barkey( Book )

13 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in 3 languages and held by 916 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Kurds, one of the oldest ethnic groups in the Middle East, are reasserting their identity-politically and through violence. Turkey's essentially democratic structure and civil society-ideal tools for coping with and incorporating minority challenge-have so far been suspended on this issue, which the government is treating almost exclusively as a security problem to be dealt with by force. This study explores the roots, dimensions, character, and evolution of the problem, offers a range of approaches to a resolution of the conflict, and draws broader parallels between the Kurdish question a

The Arab Shiʼa : the forgotten Muslims by Graham E Fuller( Book )

23 editions published between 1999 and 2013 in English and held by 700 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book, based on extensive field interviews, examines the nature of Shi'ite belief and community life, contemporary political and social problems, key grievances, and the nature of their relationship with the dominant Sunni state today as they seek a major voice in a new political order."--Jacket
A sense of siege : the geopolitics of Islam and the West by Graham E Fuller( Book )

15 editions published between 1995 and 2018 in English and Arabic and held by 598 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is an exploration of the nature of the friction between the Muslim world and the West, looking at legitimate perceptions and grievances on both sides. Arguing that "Islam versus the West" does not represent the arena of the next global ideological struggle, the authors examine specific issues - for example, the enlarged role of Islam in internal politics - that require careful handling to prevent the consolidation of states into opposing blocs. They suggest that comprehensive reform to break away from authoritarian order is of paramount importance, that political Islam threatens the established order in Muslim countries far more than it threatens the West, and that violent confrontation can best be circumvented by integrating Islamist forces into the political process."--Provided by publisher

Algeria, the next fundamentalist state? by Graham E Fuller( Book )

14 editions published between 1966 and 1997 in English and French and held by 372 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study is one of a series by the author on Islamic fundamentalism, or Islamism, in the Muslim world. This study is of particular policy interest because it deals with the prospect of a fundamentalist victory in Algeria, the largest and one of the most important Arab states. A fundamentalist takeover in Algeria will have major repercussions in the region. The author attempts to put such a takeover into perspective: What would it look like, and what would it mean for the West and the region? This problem is of intense interest not only to Washington but also to Western Europe, which would be the recipient of potential refugee flows and is already (and increasingly) dependent on Algerian natural gas. The author also looks at the Algerian case on a comparative basis: What does it tell us about the varieties of the broader international movement of political Islam?
Turkey's new geopolitics : from the Balkans to Western China by Graham E Fuller( Book )

12 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and held by 364 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With the astonishing transformations in the geopolitics of the world since the collapse of the Soviet Union, Turkey has been profoundly affected by the changes on its periphery. For the first time since the beginning of the century, a Turkic world has blossomed, giving Turkey potential new foreign policy clout from the Balkans across the Caucasus and into Central Asia and Western China. These geopolitical opportunities have dramatically changed the character of Turkey itself, once an isolationist, Eurocentered NATO ally. At the same time, Turkey has undergone an internal evolution over the last decade, making it an attractive model of Middle Eastern development because of its increasingly free market, democratic governance, and secularist outlook. This book explores the character of the new Turkey, assessing its foreign policy options and interpreting the significance of those choices for the Middle East, Central Asia, Europe, and the United States
The new Turkish republic : Turkey as a pivotal state in the Muslim world by Graham E Fuller( Book )

22 editions published between 2007 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 345 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first in a series of volumes that examine pivotal states in the Muslim world, this timely work explores how, after a long period of isolation, Turkey is becoming a major player in Middle Eastern politics once again. In fact, by acting independently and attempting to reconcile its constitutionally secular form of governance and vibrant traditional culture, it is now for the first time becoming positively viewed by others in the Muslim world as a state worth watching - and maybe even emulating. As a result, Turkey's dynamic political scene and new search for independence in its foreign policy, however complicating or irritating for the United States today, will nonetheless ultimately serve the best interests of Turkey, the Middle East, and even the West. Drawing heavily on a range of Turkish and Western sources, this multidimensional, lively, and nuanced volume provides an excellent introduction to one of the region's most fascinating and complex countries and makes a highly valuable contribution to the current debate about Turkey and its place in the world. -- Description from (June 27, 2012.)
Islamist politics in Iraq after Saddam Hussein by Graham E Fuller( )

3 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 300 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From Eastern Europe to Western China : the growing role of Turkey in the world and its implications for western interests by Graham E Fuller( Book )

6 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 184 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report summarizes many of the broad findings of the project's previous regional papers and reviews those findings from the point of view of Western and American interests. Turkey has been among those states most sharply affected by the changing international environment. Long isolated on the periphery of Europe in geopolitical terms, Turkey now lies at the center of a rapidly evolving Turkic region stretching from the Adriatic to western China, a region in which Ankara is likely to be a key factor. The resulting challenges and opportunities for Turkish foreign and security policy will have an important influence on the way Turkey sees itself and deals with others, including the European Community. Against this background, bilateral relations with the United States will take on increased significance. At the same time, the potential for bilateral friction on regional security issues may expand

The West Bank of Israel : point of no return? by Graham E Fuller( Book )

7 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study discusses the causes of the intifada -- the Palestinian uprising on the West Bank -- as well as its evolution and institutionalization, and its ultimate goals. It treats the complex question of local leadership and the natural state of tension between internal and external (Palestine Liberation Organization, or PLO) Palestinian leadership. It explores the long-term ambivalence of Jordan toward the West Bank and the definitive death of the "Jordanian option." It reviews the character and implications of the "Palestinian option," along with the key political dilemmas the PLO must eventually resolve. It also considers Israeli dilemmas. Finally, the report discusses the new international factors affecting the situation. The author concludes that a Palestinian state on the West Bank is overwhelmingly the most probable long-term outcome of the present struggle

Islamic fundamentalism in Afghanistan : its character and prospects by Graham E Fuller( Book )

7 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 156 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Afghan fundamentalist (Islamist) movement, which has been active in Afghan politics since the late 1960s, has been powerfully reinforced by the Soviet invasion and, subsequently, by the mujahidin's sensational victory over the Red Army. This report reviews the foundations of Islamist strength, considers whether Islamists will come to power, reviews weaknesses of Islamist parties, and considers implications for the United States if an Islamist regime were to come to power. The author concludes that, although the Islamists have established a "permanent" place in Afghan politics, their position is likely to change as a new, postcommunist phase begins in Afghanistan. The probability that radical Islamists will exercise exclusive power in Afghanistan is slight, but they will always be a factor in Afghan politics, and their exclusion from governance could be the root of prolonged civil conflict. Finally, while radical Islamists will remain cool to the United States, they are unlikely to vehemently oppose it under any circumstances
Islamic fundamentalism in Pakistan : its character and prospects by Graham E Fuller( Book )

5 editions published between 1991 and 1999 in English and held by 148 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report, one of a series of four analyzing Islamic fundamentalism in Turkey, Iran, Afghanistan, and Pakistan, examines the phenomenon of Islamic fundamentalism in Pakistan: its origins, historical basis, and relationship to the political, economic, and social institutions. It also considers the likely character of fundamentalist policies if Islamic radicals were to come to power. The role of Iranian influence in Pakistan is also examined. Finally, the study examines the implications for U.S. policy and the possible options the United States has in shaping its relations with Pakistan in the future. The author concludes that, given Pakistan's political culture, the United States ought to tread cautiously in extending its own political, cultural, and military presence there. Even though the fundamentalists are unlikely to come to power and wage a vendetta against the United States, they constitute a basic reservoir of latent hostility that must be kept in mind as a factor limiting U.S. influence in Pakistan
