Investigates the emergence of a militant deterritorialized Islam that has fewer links to any particular country and/or culture. This book argues that mainstream Islamist movements in the Muslim world have become Islamo-nationalist, recasting their political action within a national framework (e.g. the Hamas of Palestine, the Hezbullah of Lebanon).
