Mirror For the Muslim Prince: Islam and the Theory of Statecraft by Mehrzad Boroujerdi

In the aftermath of the tragic events of September 11, 2001 it seems as if "Islamic fundamentalists" has emerged as the bête noire of the post-Cold War world. A whole cottage industry has emerged that depicts Islam as nothing more than a sign system (clerics, veils, guns, flag burnings, fist-waving) and subject of traumatic news (terrorists, assassins, hostage takers, etc). The monolithic characterization of Muslims assumes that there is a unitary "Islamic" position on important issues of statecraft and governance. The aim of "Mirror for the Muslim Prince" is to move beyond the fashionable yet cursory understanding of Muslims' beliefs regarding power and statecraft. By assembling a group of world class scholars, this book challenges a host of exalted assumptions and theories concerning political power in the Muslim world. Contributors to the volume include Charles Butterworth, Serif Mardin, Muzaffar Alam, and Roxanne L. Euben
