Product Description: " The second volume of the Yearbook of Sociology enters into a new terrain in the analysis of relationships which are grouped around the tensions between Islam and Modernity: the South-South dimension of cultural exchange. The editors, Georg Stauth and Helmut Buchholt, propose with this volume to limit in a first step of analysis the South-South dimension, first, to the intermediary role of Islam as a pattern of cultural exchange between various regions of the Non-Western World. More specifically, here, the perspective focusses on the Middle East and Southeast Asia. Second, like with Islam, the circulation of mundane ideas, such as Feminism, Ghandism, Socialism, the Non-alignment movement and Postmodernism contributed to the gradual shaping of patterns and ideas of cultural reconstruction in the national cultures, exemplified in this volume with intellectual developments, Islamic and non-Islamic, in Egypt, Bangladesh, Iran and Malaysia. Third, local groups and cultural settings are largely effected by cross-religious and interregional discourse in a South-South dimension, and this is studied, here, with examples drawn from Turkey, Sudan, Southern Thailand and the Indonesian Moluccas. These exchanges stand in an ambiguous relationship to colonial and post-colonial structures, however, they also reach far beyond any open expected form of Western domination. At the same time the South-South dimension contributed to bring forth modes of modernity which in itself exceed the visions and ideas of local traditions, Islam and the West all alike.
