Abstract

This book traces the origins, history, and memory of the Jalayirid dynasty, a family that succeeded the Mongol Ilkhans in Iran and Iraq in the 14th and early 15th centuries. The story of how the Jalayirids came to power is illustrative of the political dynamics that shaped much of the Mongol and post-Mongol period in the Middle East. The Jalayirid sultans sought to preserve the social and political order of the Ilkhanate, while claiming that they were the rightful heirs to the rulership of that order. Central to the Jalayirids' claims to the legacy of the Ilkhanate was their attempt to control the Ilkhanid heartland of Azarbayjan and its major city, Tabriz. Control of Azarbayjan meant control of a network of long-distance trade between China and the Latin West, which continued to be a source of economic prosperity through the 8th/14th century. Azarbayjan also represented the center of Ilkhanid court life, whether in the migration of the mobile court-camp of the ruler, or in the complexes of palatial, religious and civic buildings constructed around the city of Tabriz by members of the Ilkhanid royal family, as well as by members of the military and administrative elite.

Abstract

Islam in the Post-Secular Society: Religion, Secularity and the Antagonism of Recalcitrant Faith critically examines the unique challenges facing Muslims in Europe and North America. From the philosophical perspective of the Frankfurt School’s critical theory, this book attempts not only to diagnose the current problems stemming from a marginalization of Islam in the secular West, but also to offer a proposal for a Habermasian discourse between the religious and the secular. By highlighting historical examples of Islamic and western rapprochement, and rejecting the ‘clash of civilization’ thesis, the author attempts to find a ‘common language’ between the religious and the secular, which can serve as a vehicle for a future reconciliation.

Abstract

Sie sind weltweit vernetzt, technisch auf der Höhe der Zeit und attackieren entlang einer religiösen Geopolitik. Um zu begreifen, was Bin Laden, Zawahiri und Atta antreibt, wie sie denken und fühlen und warum sie sich die moderne Alltagstechnik als Schlachtfeld ausgesucht haben, müssen wir ihnen nahe kommen. In diesem Buch werden zum ersten Mal die technischen, sakralen und seelischen Räume islamistischer Terroristen erschlossen. Mit phänomenologischen und psychoanalytischen Mitteln zeigt Elisabeth Heidenreich, zu welchen geopolitischen Implikationen die sakrale Geographie des islamistischen Terrorismus führt.
