The Christian Muslim Frontier

Full Product Description

Religion has always been used to build political organizations - from the multi-ethnic empires of the Byzantines, Arabs, Ottomans, Austrians and Russians, to the present day nation states. This book explores the complex social and political relationship of the frontier between Christianity and Islam, arguing it should be understood as a zone of contact rather than distinct line of confrontation. The Christian-Muslim Frontier describes the historical formation of this zone, and its contemporary dimensions: geopolitical, psychological, economic and security. Special attention is given to the concept of state-frontiers, to the effects of the uneven development of nation states and the contemporary interspersing of communities, which creates new functional frontiers. Further, the frontier is described as a mental construction, imagined by people in their search for social order, individual and collective security. Apostolov demonstrates that it is the political and economic situation of the local people that determines whether these frontiers result in conflict or cooperation.Rather than imposing unilateral principles of good governance, and to ensure cooperation prevails in Christian-Muslim relations, he argues that world society needs to undertake multilateral efforts to build participatory political institutions that accommodate groups with different identities.

The Christian Muslim Frontier by Mario Apostolov was published by Taylor & Francis Ltd in September 2003. The ISBN for The Christian Muslim Frontier is 9780415302814.
