The Ends of Islamic Fundamentalism: Hegemonic Discourse and the Islamic Question in Egypt
- Author(s): Campo, Juan E.
- et al.
This essay is an inquiry into the concept "fundamentalism" as employed in the description and explanation of developments in contemporary Muslim societies, particularly Egypt. It contends that rather than referring to an objective set of phenomena, this concept has been created to serve as a key element in European and American hegemonic discourses about these societies in order to subordinate and control them.
