Description:

This paper looks at the respective world views of Muslims in different parts of the Arab world, focusing on religion, art and politics. It discusses how except in Israel, Islamic culture dominates the Middle East experience and a good deal of Asian experience besides and it is programmatically antithetical to the West. It shows how the northern, Arab Sudanese are historically inclined toward nationalism, adapting colonialist governance and public works structures to its purposes and united by Islam. It outlines the basic ideas informing each culture's world view as well as how it compares to the European world with a view toward identifying the differences in the way the groups characterize the found universe and human experience within it.

From the Paper:

"The northern, Arab Sudanese have historically inclined toward nationalism, adapting colonialist governance and public works structures to its purposes and united by Islam. The south comprised a tribalist black population variously following animism, Christianity, and Islam and resisting both Arab nationalist and cultural identity and the public-service projects that went with it (Spodek 728). Meanwhile the country is horribly impoverished and illiterate; five percent of all land in the country is arable, but two-thirds of all workers are agricultural ("Republic"). Result: intermittent but persistent civil war warfare since independence from Britain in 1956."
