COLONIALIZATION OF ISLAM
DISOLUTION OF TRADITIONAL INDUSTRIAL INSTITUTIONS IN PAKISTAN
What is the social base of Islamization? What norms can be derived from it? What areas are being Islamized? What is Islamization all about? These and similar pertinent questions are dealt with in this book.
The theoretical framework developed and elaborated in the first chapter is substantiated by a wide range of data that follow.
This pioneering study gives an insight into the different manifestations of Islam, rural and urban social structures, the tussle between modernity and tradition, between colonial and indigenous societies. In short: the struggle between mullahs and colonializing masters.
