This is a provocative account of the ways in which Muslim identities have come to play an increasingly political role in recent years. Theoretically innovative, it shows how Islamic movements -- despite the wide variety of their manifestations -- are best understood as a continuation of political and cultural decolonization. The fear and anxiety aroused by the so-called Islamic threat is not a myth nor is it simply a consequence of terrorism or fundamentalism. The emergence of Islamism signals the end of the uncontested notion that ‘West is best’. As the author demonstrates, Islamism means having to rethink Western identity and its place in the world, having to come to terms with the idea that the West is just another civilization among many. This study draws upon the full breadth of poststructuralist thought as a means of better understanding Islamism. As such, it is necessary reading for all those who are interested in the Muslim world -- in both its state and diasporic forms -- as well as academics concerned with questions of ‘race’ and place in a poststructuralist context.

The fear and anxiety aroused by Islamism is not a myth, nor is it simply a consequence of terrorism or fundamentalism. Writing in 1997, before 9/11 and before the austerity that has bred a new generation of far right groups across Europe and the US, S. Sayyid warned of a spectre haunting Western civilization. This groundbreaking book, banned by the Malaysian government, is both an analysis of the conditions that have made ‘Islamic fundamentalism’ possible and a provocative account of the ways in which Muslim identities have come to play an increasingly political role throughout the world. This is a pioneering, provocative and intricately crafted study, which shows the challenge of Islamism is not only geopolitical or even cultural but also epistemological.

Fear is an emotion that is strongly connected with violence and with the darkest periods of history, including terrorism, genocides, and totalitarianism. It is especially important for theology, where it can be considered to have very positive aspects. However, worldwide cultures are too often burdened with unnecessary fear. There are different factors involved in the cultivation of an 'adequate culture' of fear, and one of them is the certainly that mankind does indeed know how to cultivate it. Therefore, awareness and knowledge about the concept of fear is necessary. This book helps to increase and widen that understanding. (Series: Theology East-West / Theologie Ost-West - Vol. 17)

I am a thirty-two-year-old school teacher and have suffered from agoraphobia, panic attacks, and generalised anxiety for the past twenty years. Over the years, I have sought help from many psychiatrists, psychologists, general practioners, hypnotherapists, and centres ‘specialising’ in the treatment of anxiety and panic. But of the dozens I saw, half had no personal experience with anxiety or panic themselves, and the other half wanted to medicate me so heavily that I could barely care for my newborn. At my darkest hour, feeling there was no hope for me and that the life I wanted to live would be a dream and not a possible reality, I met Dean Smith. The fi rst time I met Dean, I walked in already convinced that he would be just like all the others and that this would all prove to be another dead end for me. However, at the end of our fi rst session, I called my husband, in sobbing tears, saying that I had fi nally found the person who could help me . . . , and he did. Dean’s approach to treating anxiety, panic, and fear allowed me to confront my demons but never once feeling afraid to do so. His practical exercises were confronting but had an amazing result. Each session taught me to both challenge and accept my thinking without being frightened anymore. After a year of working with Dean and applying his techniques to my life, my dream life finally became a reality. I once was too afraid to venture to the local shops for fear of having a panic attack in public. In March 2011, I got on a plane with my husband and son and fulfi lled my lifelong dream of going to Europe. Dean Smith gave me the tools to begin my life and discover who I truly am. I am and remain forever grateful to him. Nicky Anxiety and panic attacks led me to Dean. I didn’t know or understand what was wrong with me or why these attacks were starting to affect my life and well-being. I went to Dean because I thought I needed ‘fi xing’ because something was wrong with me. Working together, I started to learn tools that helped me understand my anxiety. This helped me to stop fearing it; I can honestly say I’m not scared anymore! Yet working with my emotions, using the many skills that I have learnt from Dean, helped me to see that I don’t need fi xing. I am perfectly normal, and my anxieties are symptoms triggered by something much deeper, thirty-fi ve years of shame, guilt, and perfectionism . . . Now something was beginning to change – me. This has been the biggest challenge in my life; however, beginning to fi nally lean into my feelings of vulnerability, working with them, and understanding them has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. My greatest gratitude goes to Dean for helping me through my journey of awareness. Brenda

It's arranged by topic and largely in chronological order, explore manifestations of fear throughout the history of the United States. Approaching the topic from a variety of perspectives and methodologies, contributors to the collection explore theoretical constructions of fear, religious intolerance in early American culture, racial discrimination, literary expressions of paranoia, and Cold War anxieties, as well as phobias of the modern age and about the future. Together, these essays cover topics from nearly every period of U.S. history, offering a remarkable picture of the nameless, unreasoning, unjustified terror that Roosevelt discerned as such a paralyzing threat on the eve of the Second World War, and which continues to haunt American culture even as we shape our perceptions of the future.

The book argues that a universally widespread virility currently prevents humans from realizing their sexualities, which are originally the feminine and the masculine. This obstacle may be traced back to Renaissance humanism, whose core intention is to take control over the so-called 'nature."
