Summary
Does the international human rights regime inform the nature of politics in the Muslim world today? If so, how? And perhaps more fundamentally, why? Linking these questions in a provocative way, Anthony Tirado Chase persuasively rejects popular arguments that there is an incompatibility between human rights and Islam. Chase uses local historical developments as a point of departure, in the process stressing the importance of focusing on the diverse Muslim world rather than on one of its parts. He carefully supports his assertions with examples from contentious żon the groundż debates. Adopting a comprehensive view of human rights, he offers a fresh take on the debates over democracy and free expression, approaches to economic development, and social rights in Muslim-majority states, as well as the role of movements within those states in shaping human rights norms
