Description from the publisher:

From the back cover: “The Myth of Authenticity: A study in Islamic Fundamentalism is an analytical and historical study of the crisis milieu the Muslim society if confronted with. As an ideology, fundamentalism strives to assert Islamic traditional values in radically changed socio-cultural and knowledgeable environments. But instead of forging an effective instrument of state craft, it seeks recourse in “authenticity”, a myth which can hardly meet the demands of the time. The fundamentalist view of the world looks more a search for a world that once was. It could inspire a few, but prudence demands that it should not be pushed too far."
