airs.The book begins with an examination of the place and unique features of this brotherhood within the larger Su
movement, and Islam in general. Itthen traces its historical evolution through three main phases, each domin-ated by one o
ff 
shoot: the original Naqshbandiyya of Central Asia, theMujaddidiyya which sprang from India, and the Khalidiyya, which wasformed in the Ottoman lands and reached the remotest corners of theMuslim world – the North Caucuses, Siberia, and Indonesia, as well asWestern Europe and North America. The
nal chapters examine modernIslamic thinkers and movements that had roots in the Naqshbandiyya andthe Naqshbandi masters and branches that have adopted new strategies tocope with the challenges of modernity and postmodernity.This fully illustrated study presents a broad synthesis of the history of theNaqshbandiyya throughout the eight centuries of its existence, and analysesits basic principles and the teachings of its outstanding masters. As such,it will be an indispensable tool for students of Su
studies, scholars of medieval and modern Islam and the informed public that is interested in themanifestations of Islam beyond its current militant version.

is senior lecturer at the Department of Middle Easternhistory, University of Haifa, Israel. His research interests focus on modernIslam, particularly interrelations between Su
