Abstract

Book Reviews by the tongue or the pen" (p. 165). Even different fundamental groups in the Islamic world cannot agree on any one definition or priority of jihad. Although the last two chapters narrowly focus on Egyptian fundamentalists' calls for jihad during wars with Israel, Peters gives us adequate counter-calls against jihad, which further makes the issue complex. It reminds us of the current spate of violence between the Israelis and Palestinians, and, especially, the justification of suicide bombing that has split Muslim scholars. There are as many for as against suicide bombing in terms of the fatwas issued by the pro-jihad and anti-jihad scholars. The more one feels the brunt of the Israeli collective punishments, the greater one feels justification for suicide bombing. Overall, if used with good critical thinking, students in world history courses will find the book enlightening, especially in view of current Middle East affairs. abdul karim khan University of Hawai`i Asian Merchants and Businessmen in the Indian Ocean and the China Sea.
