Islam, the People and the State: Essays on Political Ideas and Movements in the Middle East. Middle East Rep. Sami Zubaida. In this book, Sami Zubaida challenges these diverse opinions in favor of a general political sociology capable of dealing with the historical and cultural personalities of societies and situations in the region. He argues that rather than being "revivals" of historical ideas and institutions, current political and social developments in the Islamic World are, in fact, uniquely modern phenomena.

The recent prominence of Islamic politics in the Middle East, has raised important questions about society, politics and culture. It has posed a challenge to the main theoretical approaches in the social sciences from Marxism to modernization theory and it has given some credence to the idea that the world of Islam is essentially distinct from Europe, and follows a course of development dictated by its own history and culture.

As Sami Zubaida has argued, the Islamic movements have since their heyday in the 1970s become routinised

As Sami Zubaida has argued, the Islamic movements have since their heyday in the 1970s become routinised. 2 For a more detailed discussion of Islam and ideology, see Shepard (1987). There are currently a large number of books and articles on all aspects of political Islam in the Middle East, but it is rarer to see any explicit theorising aimed at explaining the Islamic revival itself. In many studies there is an implicit assumption that the revival is a result of relative deprivation (see, Gurr 1970), in particular oppressive state policies and social injustice. A general problem with these assumptions is that they may explain the revival in some countries in the Middle East but not in others.
