David Motadel: Islam und die Politik der europäischen Großmächte, 1798-1989


Islam and the European Powers, 1798-1989
The article surveys recent literature on the engagement of the European powers with the Muslim world from the Imperial Age to the end of the Cold War. Policy-makers of the great powers regularly perceived Islam as a force of considerable political relevance. Recent historical research has enquired into the ways in which European politicians, strategists, officers and policy-makers dealt with Islam, asking how they understood and conceptualised the religion and engaged with it in practice. The article first addresses the most current studies on the policies of the European empires towards Islam, including those of the French in Africa and the British in India. It further discusses research on the Islam campaigns of the great powers during the two World Wars and, finally, during the Cold War, when Western strategists came to see parts of the Muslim world as a 'green belt against communism'.
