Summary
The present volume analyses the relation between religion and nationalism within the wider context of the so-called "Islamic World" from the first half of twentieth century until the most recent events of the Arab Spring. In particular, the book seeks to investigate the historical significance of this relationship, evaluating and exploring its multidimensional character, with a particular focus on the concepts of the 'nationalization' of religion and 'religious nationalism'. The book comprises chapters from seventeen specialists.--
