Lahore. In einem Café sitzen sich ein mitteilsamer Pakistani und ein zurückhaltender Amerikaner gegenüber. Als langsam die Nacht über die Stadt hereinbricht, enthüllt der Pakistani immer mehr Details seiner Lebensgeschichte. Changez heißt er, und er erzählt, wie er als junger, ehrgeiziger Gaststudent nach Princeton kommt. Als Vorzeigestudent wird er nach seinem Abschluss sofort von einer Elite-Firma engagiert. Er stürzt sich ins pulsierende Leben New Yorks, erhält durch seine reiche Freundin Erica Zugang zu Manhattans High Society und wähnt sich auf der Seite der Gewinner. Aber nach dem 11. September fällt sein amerikanischer Traum vom unaufhaltsamen Aufstieg langsam in sich zusammen. Plötzlich erscheint Changez die Bindung an seine Heimat wichtiger als Geld, Macht und Erfolg. All dies berichtet der Pakistani dem Amerikaner, dessen Motivation an dem Gespräch im Dunkeln bleibt. Allein im Spiegel des Erzählers zeichnet sich ab, dass der grausame Höhepunkt der Geschichte kurz bevorsteht.

The Reluctant Fundamentalist is Mohsin Hamid's thrillingly provocative international bestseller Shortlisted for the Man Booker prize in 2007 Now a major film directed by Mira Nair and starring Kate Hudson and Kiefer Sutherland 'Excuse me, sir, but may I be of assistance? Ah, I see I have alarmed you. Do not be frightened by my beard. I am a lover of America . . . ' So speaks the mysterious stranger at a Lahore cafe as dusk settles. Invited to join him for tea, you learn his name and what led this speaker of immaculate English to seek you out. For he is more worldy than you might expect; better travelled and better educated. He knows the West better than you do. And as he tells you his story, of how he embraced the Western dream -- and a Western woman -- and how both betrayed him, so the night darkens. Then the true reason for your meeting becomes abundantly clear . . . Challenging, mysterious and thrillingly tense, Mohsin Hamid's masterly The Reluctant Fundamentalist is a vital read teeming with questions and ideas about some of the most pressing issues of today's globalised, fractured world. 'Masterful . . . A multi-layered and thoroughly gripping book, which works as a poignant love story, a powerful dissection of how US imperialist machinations have turned so many people against the world's superpower - and as a thriller that subtly ratchets up the nerve-jangling tension towards an explosive ending' Metro 'Beautifully written . . . more exciting than any thriller I've read for a long time' Philip Pullman 'A brilliant book' Kiran Desai 'Admirably spare and amazingly exciting' Rachel Cooke, New Statesman Mohsin Hamid is the author of The Reluctant Fundamentalist, Moth Smoke and How to Get Filthy Rich in Rising Asia. His fiction has been translated into over 30 languages, received numerous awards, and been shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize. He has contributed essays and short stories to publications such as the Guardian, The New York Times, Financial Times, Granta, and Paris Review. Born and mostly raised in Lahore, he spent part of his childhood in California, studied at Princeton University and Harvard Law School, and has since lived between Lahore, London, and New York.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2008 im Fachbereich Anglistik - Literatur, Note: 1, Ludwig-Maximilians-Universitat Munchen (Institut fur Englische Philologie), Veranstaltung: Reactions to Terrorism - Criticism and Literature after 9/11, Sprache: Deutsch, Anmerkungen: Ihre Arbeit uberzeugt nicht nur durch die interessante und prazise Fragestellung, sondern auch durch einen klaren Aufbau. Die Argumentation ist stets zielgerichtet und insgesamt von hoher Uberzeugungskraft. Positiv hervorzuheben ist daruber hinaus, dass Sie zu wirklich spannenden Beobachtungen und Ergebnissen gelangen. Ich habe ihre ausserst eigenstandige Arbeit, die schon recht souveran eine Vielzahl relevanter literatur- und kulturwissenschaftlicher Kontexte heranzieht, uber weite Strecken weniger als Korrektorin, sondern mit echtem Interesse gelesen., Abstract: Die katastrophalen Anschlage vom 11. September 2001 haben Menschen auf der ganzen Welt schockiert. Noch bevor sich die Staubwolke gelegt hatte und das Aus-mass des bislang heftigsten terroristischen Angriffs sichtbar wurde, war jedem ein-zelnen, ob New Yorker oder nicht, bewusst, dass dieses Ereignis weitreichende Folgen haben wurde. Kurz nach den Terroranschlagen konnte bereits beobachtet werden, wie sich diese schreckliche Tat, gerade im Zeitalter der Globalisierung, auf viele Bereiche des gesellschaftlichen Zusammenlebens auswirkt. Bis heute, nur wenige Jahre nach den Anschlagen, sind zahlreiche Bucher, Dokumentationen und auch Kinofilme erschienen, die diese weltweite historische Zasur thematisieren. Der Verarbeitungsprozess ist langst nicht abgeschlossen und somit lassen sich vor allem in den jungsten Werken der Weltliteratur interessante Beobachtungen zur amerikanischen Post-9/11-Gesellschaft machen. Mohsin Hamids Novelle The Reluctant Fundamentalist zeigt auf besonders interessante Art und Weise wie sich die Anschlage vom 11. September auf die amerikanische Gesellschaft auswirken. Bemerkenswert ist nicht nur, dass The Reluctant Fundamen

The Reluctant Fundamentalist is more than the usual immigrant book of adaptation, struggle, and identity. It is the gripping tale of a young man who comes to America from Pakistan just prior to 9/11. The protagonist, Changez, is a Harvard educated businessman who works for a high-profile company that assesses the economic value of other companies. Changez is very successful in his chosen career, but then September 11 happens and everything changes. The setting is Lahore, Pakistan and the tale is told by one narrator, that of Changez, as he speaks to a nameless and faceless American tourist. The narration takes place in the span of a single evening, in fact, during a single meal, and Hamid manages to swing the reader on a pendulum of conflicting emotions and thoughts. The Bookclub-in-a-Box guide explores a number of important questions: who is this nameless American and why is he in Pakistan; how can one person have equal love for two countries that are at odds with each other in culture and outlook; how does such a person come to terms with his two worlds; and what is the significance of the word “reluctant” in the novel’s title, The Reluctant Fundamentalist. Every Bookclub-in-a-Box discussion guide also includes complete coverage of the themes and symbols, writing style and interesting background information on the novel and the author.

ABOUT THE BOOK “I wonder now, sir, whether I believed at all in the firmness of the foundations of the new life I was attempting to construct for myself in New York.” Americans remember where they were on September 11, 2001, a day that has become a permanent fixture in the calendar. As retaliation for the attack the US launched a war in Afghanistan called “Operation Enduring Freedom” with the goal of dismantling the Taliban. Currently, the Afghanistan war has become America's longest war, even longer than the war in Vietnam. Given the duration of the war and how it began, it is surprising to note that many people in Afghanistan don’t know why the war started. Considering that 42% of the population is under 14 and that 72% is illiterate, it’s not surprising that this event doesn’t register. In addition the scarcity of electricity, also explains ignorance of the event American “foreigners” call September 11th. As a result most people from Afghanistan don’t understand why the U.S. invaded their country, causing more than than 12,000 civilian deaths since the war started. The disparity of the two worldviews continues to contribute to the tensions between the two countries. Similarly, the average American knows very little about the Afghani people and the politics of this area. In an Angus Reid Public Opinion Poll half of American respondents said they don’t understand what the war in Afghanistan is about. One of the reasons for this might be because the U.S. media doesn’t focus on this war as much as on the Kardashians. This tension and lack of understanding creates a perfect opening for The Reluctant Fundamentalist by Mohsin Hamad to educate Americans about the other side. The Reluctant Fundamentalist is about a Pakistani living in New York who reevaluates his successful American life after the September 11 attacks. The book’s main advantage is that it is so topical. Given the heavy involvement of the U.S. in the Middle East, as well as neighbouring Afghanistan and Pakistan, it seems no region is more important to American welfare. EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK “Students like me were given visas and scholarships, complete financial aid, mind you and invited into the ranks of the meritocracy. In return we were expected to contribute our talents to your society, the society we were joining. And for the most part we were happy to do so. I certainly was, at least at first.” (pg.4) It is worth describing the author’s background, which can be found on his website, because it bears many similarities to the main character of the novel, Changez. From the ages of 9 to 18, the author lived in Lahore, Pakistan. Hamid studied at Princeton University and graduated summa cum laude. He then went Harvard Law School. Upon graduation he got a job at the elite McKinsey and Company and used his free time to complete his first novel. This novel, Moth Smoke, took seven years to complete, but became a bestseller in India and Pakistan. The Reluctant Fundamentalist is his second book and also took seven years to complete. On BBC Radio Hamid explains that the reason it took him so long to write both books is that he is figuring them out as he writes them. Quicklet on Mohsin Hamid's The Reluctant Fundamentalist The Reluctant Fundamentalist is the story of Changez who comes from Pakistan to study at Princeton University. At Princeton he excels and is rewarded with a job at the prestigious valuation firm “Ultrawood Samson.” He uses his sign on bonus to pay for a trip to Greece with his classmates. In Greece he falls in love with an all American girl named Erica. He is attracted to her beauty and she is attracted to his old fashioned manners. As he gets to know her Changez finds out that her ex boyfriend, Chris, died of lung cancer a year earlier.

Wissenschaftlicher Aufsatz aus dem Jahr 2013 im Fachbereich Anglistik - Literatur, , Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Mohsin Hamids Roman The Reluctant Fundamentalist beschäftigt sich – wie die meisten Romane islamischer Autoren – mit den Themen Globalisierung, Migration, der Rolle des Islam in der modernen Weltgemeinschaft, dem Leben von Musliminnen und Muslimen in der Diaspora und der Frage islamischer Identität. Daneben beinhaltet dieses Werk aber eine geografische Neuerung zu Rushdie, Kureishi und Ali, die als Ergänzung angesehen werden muss. Hamid verlagert den Handlungsort abwechselnd zwischen Amerika und Pakistan. Damit gelingt ihm nicht nur die Beschreibung des Innen- und Außenlebens seiner Hauptperson Changez und eine genauere Betrachtung seines Hybridseins, sondern der Leser bekommt dadurch einen anderen Zugang zur Thematik des Fundamentalismus. Man wird gegen Ende des Romans mit der Frage konfrontiert, wer fundamentalistischer ist, der Islam militanter Prägung oder der US Kapitalismus. Auf dem Weg zu einer Antwort macht Mohsin (wie alle anderen hier vorgestellten Autorinnen und Autoren) deutlich, dass die Frage nach der Identität des Menschen nach wie vor die zentrale Thematik für Moslems im Westen ist. Als Option – und das ist neu – bietet er dem Heimkehrer Changez die langsame und sorgfältige Rückkehr zu den religiösen und spirituellen Wurzeln des Islam an. Damit zeigt er deutlicher als Rushdie, Kureishi oder Ali, dass Hybridität nicht immer funktioniert und eine Rückbesinnung auf die eigenen kulturellen und religiösen Wurzeln eine Reaktion auf das Leben im Westen mit seiner Westerness oder der Verwirklichung des American Dream sein kann.

From Solidarity to Schisms is the first collection to expand discussions of the effects the events of 11 September 2001 and their aftermath have had on fiction and film beyond an exclusively US-based focus. The essays brought together here go beyond critiquing the US to examine the cultural shifts taking place in fiction and cinema from places such as Britain, France, Germany, Australia, Pakistan, Canada, Israel, and Iran. From these many sites of production, the works discussed in this collection illustrate more precisely how 9/11 was “global” without succumbing to neat categorizations, such as “us vs. them,” “East vs. West,” “Christianity vs. Islam,” and so on.From Solidarity to Schisms is an important supplement to the US-centered cultural and critical production addressing 9/11, providing researchers and teachers alike with resources and contexts that will allow them to broaden their own examinations of novels and films by Americans and about the US. It also provides a valuable resource for students and scholars of contemporary global history and international politics who are interested in approaching 9/11, terrorism and counter-terrorism, and related topics from a cultural standpoint.
