  • PREFACE The entire world of Islam is to day in profound ferment From Morocco to China and from Turkestan to the Congo, the 250,000,000 followers of the Prophet Mohammed are stirring to new ideas, new impulses, new aspirations A gigantic transformation is taking place whose results must affect all mankind This transformation was greatly stimulated by the late war But itPREFACE The entire world of Islam is to day in profound ferment From Morocco to China and from Turkestan to the Congo, the 250,000,000 followers of the Prophet Mohammed are stirring to new ideas, new impulses, new aspirations A gigantic transformation is taking place whose results must affect all mankind This transformation was greatly stimulated by the late war But it began long before More than a hundred years ago the seeds were sown, and ever since then it has been evolving at first slowly and obscurely later rapidly and perceptibly until to day, under the stimulus of Armageddon, it has burst into sudden and startling bloom The story of that strange and dramatic evolution I have endeavoured to tell in the following pages Considering in turn its various aspects religious, cultural, political, economic, social I have tried to portray their genesis and development, to analyse their character, and to appraise their potency While making due allowance for local differentiations, the intimate correlation and underlying unity of the various movements have ever been kept in view Although the book deals primarily with the Moslem world, it necessarily includes the non Moslem Hindu elements of India The field covered is thus virtually the entire Near and Middle East The Far East has not been directly considered, but parallel developments there have been noted and should always be kept in mind LOTHROP STODDARD

    One thought on “حاضر العالم الإسلامي”

    1. كتاب ماتع قرأت منه الجزء الأول وأفاض شكيب أرسلان في التعليق عليه وكتابة بعض الفصول الإضافية الهامة جدا التي تفوق أهمية الكتاب الأصلي اذ كان الأمير شكيب أرسلان مطلعاً على الكثير من الأمور على التي تحدث عنها المؤلف وقريبا من الأشخاص الذي صنعوا الأحداث التي تكلم عنها المؤلف وم [...]

    2. The Good:He gives a decent overview of Muslim nationalist movements and pan-Islamic movements. Why did they form? How did they spread? Will they threaten European Empires? Particularly interesting is the intersection of Liberal and extremists in relation to Kaffir imperialism.The Bad:His treatment of Islamic history. He makes so many serious errors I had to question whether I should keep reading or not. I'll list a few examples:He honestly thinks the Arabs are democratic because they never bowed [...]

    3. The author writes of Near Eastern civilization with a sense of awe, recognizing a formidable civilization lying dormant, but the scope of the book is much larger than that. He really doestry to touch upon the entire Islamic world from North Africa to China, covering history and then contemporary political and religious developments. It's very apologetic towards Islam, and certainly does not dismiss it as a backwards or fanatic religion. As another reviewer has noted, he claims that the original [...]

    4. [1923]Bien que cet ouvrage traite surtout des questions d’ordre politique et social, il est intéressant aussi à d’autres points de vue. L’auteur, disons-le tout de suite, est loin d’être impartial : il est imbu de tous les préjugés occidentaux en général, et de ceux du protestantisme anglo-saxon en particulier ; il réédite tous les clichés courants sur l’« obscurantisme » et sur le « progrès » ; il ne trouve à louer que ce qui lui paraît, à tort ou à raison, avoir un [...]

    5. قراءة هذا الكتاب كان أمراً صعباً للغاية توقفت عن القراءة بعد 450 صفحة تقريباً ( الكتاب عبارة عن مجلدين مجموع صفحاتهما حوالي 1000 صفحة - والمجلد الثاني أغلبه كتبه شكيب أرسلان وليس لوثروب ستودارد - ) توجد عدة أسباب لأطلق هذا الوصف على الكتاب أولها هو أنه كتب بعد الحرب العالمية الأ [...]

    6. هذا كتاب أمير البيان الأشهر، والذي تعقب فيه كتاب لوثرب ستودارد المستشرق الامريكي "حاضر العالم الإسلامي" وقدكتب شكيب أرسلان تعليقاته على ترجمة هذا الكتاب فطغت التعليقات المسهبة على متن الكتاب الرئيسي فأضحى المؤلف الذي لم يشغل سوى 300 صحيفة مجلدين كبيرين هما موسوعة تاريخية تص [...]
