This books seeks to bridge a gap in the existing literature that emphasizes Islamic fundamentalist movements, providing a typology of many manifestations of Islam both known and unknown, including Sufi orders, sects, and proselytizing movements. Cesari identifies two opposing strands of Islam, one defensive and conservative, the other constructive and cosmopolitan, and investigates their emergence, development, and effect upon international relations. The unique interdisciplinary scope of the book allows for an in-depth analysis of data polls, surveys, political discourses, policy programs, interviews, and focus groups with Muslims. Ultimately, Why the West Fears Islam unveils the specifics of western liberalism and secularism and its transformations since 9/11.
