Eurocentrism: Modernity, Religion and Democracy - A Critique of Eurocentrism and Culturalism

by Samir Amin
£12.95   paperback  Pambazuka Press (2010)

Eurocentrism: Modernity, Religion and Democracy - A Critique of Eurocentrism and Culturalism by Samir Amin Since its first publication twenty years ago, Eurocentrism has become a classic of radical thought.
 
Written by one of the world's foremost political economists, this original and provocative essay takes on one of the great 'ideological deformations' of our time: Eurocentrism. Rejecting the dominant Eurocentric view of world history, which narrowly and incorrectly posits a progression from the Greek and Roman classical world to Christian feudalism and the European capitalist system, Amin presents a sweeping reinterpretation that emphasises the crucial historical role played by the Arab Islamic world.
 
Throughout the work, Amin addresses a broad set of concerns, ranging from the ideological nature of scholastic metaphysics to the meanings and shortcomings of contemporary Islamic fundamentalism. This second edition contains a new introduction and concluding chapter, both of which make the author's arguments even more compelling.
