Description:

This innovative book analyzes the relationship between religion and politics in the Middle East through a comparative study of five countries—Egypt, Israel, Turkey, Iran, and Saudi Arabia. Author Robert D. Lee examines each country in terms of four areas in which state and religion necessarily interact: group identity, ideology, institutions, and political culture. He also considers twenty-five commonly encountered (but often contradictory) hypotheses asserting that religion is either an obstacle or an aid to political development, or that religion is largely irrelevant to the development process. Is secularization a necessary prerequisite for democratic development? How is it and why is it that religion and politics are so deeply entangled in these five countries? Why is it that all five countries differ so markedly in the way they identify themselves and use religion for political purposes? The book confronts these questions and others. Lee concludes that the nature of religious organization and practice in the Middle East cannot be understood without reference to a national political context.   The second edition is updated throughout and includes an entirely new chapter discussing the political and religious climate in Saudi Arabia. Brief historical chronologies are also included in each chapter, making this the perfect text for courses on religion and politics in the Middle East.
