Fattah, Moataz A.

Democratic values in the muslim world / Moataz A. Fattah. - New Dehli: Lynne Rienner Pub, 2006. - 209 p. ; 23 cm.


Is Islam compatible with democracy? Despite the seemingly endless debate on this issue, Moataz Fattah's study is a rare investigation of actual Muslim beliefs about democracy across numerous and diverse Islamic societies.Fattah's survey analysis of more than 31,000 Muslims in 34 countries (including 3 countries in which Muslims live as minorities), enhanced by focus group discussions, offers a nuanced portrait of the link between Islam and democracy. His work advances discussion on this critical topic to a new, more sophisticated level.This is a sweeping examination of Muslim public opinion about governance and democracy.
