This book focuses on Islamism as a political ideology by taking up the case of Jamaat-e-Islami in contemporary India and Bangladesh. It probes at whether Islamism can articulate a politics of alternative in a world marked by capitalist globalization and neoliberal consensus; what happens to the promise and goal of Islamism in providing an alternative to capitalism after the failure of twentieth-century socialism; and if a religious ideology like Islamism can represent a politics of social transformation or can it only limit itself as a peculiar politics of resistance and critique to neoliberal capitalism. This book addresses how in a contemporary globalized world Islamists construct an antagonistic frontier and try to mobilize people behind the political project of Islamism. It deals with the Islamist critique of neoliberal economic policies and ?western cultural globalization?. Further it analyzes why Islamists are opposed to such issues as atheism blasphemy and sexual freedom. Finally it traces the contemporary crisis of Islamist populism in providing an alternative to neoliberalism.Printed Pages: 358.
