In Islam, Authoritarianism, and Underdevelopment, Ahmet T. Kuru argues that Muslims were philosophically and socioeconomically more developed than Western Europeans between the 9th to twelfth centuries. So, why do Muslim-majority countries now exhibit high levels of authoritarianism and low levels of socio-economic development in comparison to world averages? Ahmet speaks to Janet Steels about how historical explanations link to contemporary politics.

Dalam Islam, Otoritarianisme, dan Keterbelakangan, Ahmet T. Kuru berpendapat bahwa umat Islam secara filosofis dan sosial ekonomi lebih berkembang daripada orang Eropa Barat antara abad ke-9 hingga ke-12. Jadi, mengapa negara-negara mayoritas Muslim menunjukkan tingkat otoritarianisme yang tinggi dan tingkat pembangunan sosial ekonomi yang rendah dibandingkan dengan rata-rata dunia? Bergabunglah dengannya saat dia menjelaskan bagaimana penjelasan sejarah terkait dengan politik kontemporer.
