This chapter provides an introduction to the history, themes and debates concerning the relationship between Islam and politics. The authors trace a short history of Islam and Islamism's relation to politics from the early days of Muahmmad, to Islamism online, in music (hip hop, punk), and popular culture, arguing that the point about 'Political Islam' is not so much that it is Islamic, but that it is political.
