Beyond Piety and Politics: Religion, Social Relations, and Public Preferences in the Middle East and North Africa by Sabri Ciftci, F. Michael Wuthrich, and Ammar Shamaileh
A deeper and more nuanced understanding of the relationship between religion and politics is at all times important. What the authors of this work offer is a new way of incorporating both empirical and quantitative studies to understand how piety informs political thinking for Muslims. This innovative new approach yields data that will provoke a great deal of conversation and debate for years to come. This work will appeal to scholars and students working on comparative politics, political theory, public policy, and religion and politics as it relates to Islam.
