The Historical Dictionary of Islamic Fundamentalism provides a comprehensive and detailed examination into Islam as a religion, Islam as a government, and Islam as a way of life. It is a thorough analysis of various groups, events, movements, key figures, and dogmas that have influenced contemporary Islamic Fundamentalism.

In this book, Dr. Guidère provides an in-depth look at Islamic Fundamentalism through a detailed chronology, an introductory essay, an Arabic-to-English glossary, and an extensive bibliography. The main portion of the book consists of the dictionary section, which has over 500 cross-referenced entries on groups, events, movements, key figures, dogmas, ideologies, and movements of the 20th and 21st centuries. This book is an excellent access point for high school students, college students, and anyone interested in a better understanding of the world of Islam.
