Charitable Crescent: Politics of Aid in the Muslim World

charitable crescent benthall jonathan bellion jourdan jerome

How can public trust both Western and Islamic in welfare delivery systems be won? More theoretically, he has explored how a 'polythetic' definition of religion can fruitfully be applied to a number of ideological movements that are in appearance wholly secular, and is also exploring how analytical concepts of 'purity and danger', derived from the work of Mary Douglas, can be applied comparatively to the understanding of many ideological systems, both 'religious' and 'secular'. This text surveys Middle Eastern and Muslim charity groups, their work and their links to the political firmament within the Islamic world today. Some portray the entire sector as a conduit for terrorist financing. The first nine chapters review the current situation of Islamic charities from many different viewpoints theological, historical, diplomatic, legal, sociological and ethnographic with first-hand data from the United States, Britain, IsraelPalestine, Mali and Indonesia. This thoughtful and meticulously researched book is the one indispensable guide to the issues surrounding this complicated and misunderstood phenomenon.
