Abstract: Bernard Haykel is professor of Near Eastern Studies at Princeton University. He also directs The Institute for the Transregional Study of the Contemporary Middle East, North Africa and Central Asia and leads a project on Oil and Energy in the Middle East. Haykel’s primary research interests center on Islamic political movements and legal thought as well as the politics and history of Saudi Arabia and Yemen. He has published extensively on the Salafi movement in both its premodern and modern manifestations, explored in his book Revival and Reform in Islam (Cambridge University Press, 2003). He is presently completing a second book on the Global Salafi movement and, once completed, hopes to turn his attention to a monograph on the modern history of Saudi Arabia. Haykel is considered one of America’s leading experts on the Arabian Peninsula and his commentary appears frequently in print and broadcast media, including CNN, ABC, National Public Radio, Guardian, and The National. In 2005, the Carnegie Corporation of New York selected him as a Carnegie Scholar. Prior to joining the Princeton faculty he was associate professor of Islamic and Middle Eastern history at New York University. Haykel received his Ph.D. in Islamic Studies from the University of Oxford.
