Since the rise of the Taliban and Al Qaeda the traditional Islamic schools known as Madrasas have frequently been portrayed as hotbeds of terrorism. For much longer modernizers have denounced Madrasas as impediments to social progress although others have praised them for their self sufficiency and for providing authentic grassroots education. For numerous poor Muslims in Asia the Madrasa still constitutes the only accessible form of education. Madrasa reform has been high on the political and social agendas of governments across Asia but the Madrasa itself remains a little understood institution. The Madrasa in Asia Political Activism and Transnational Linkages fills a major gap in understanding the dynamics of Muslim education and activism at the grassroots. Printed Pages: 304
