Review:

'Pargeter has established a reputation as one of the best current analysts of Islamic radicalism. This book - detailed, authoritative, sober, perceptive and meticulously researched - shows why ... A must read for scholars, students and anyone interested in the Middle East.' Jason Burke

'Alison Pargeter's book on the Brotherhood was published to critical acclaim in 2010 ... Using both interviews and written sources, it provided a level-headed survey of an elusive Pan-Islamic organization that has been part of the Arab political landscape since Hassan al-Banna founded it 80 years ago. Now a well-timed paperback edition with a new final chapter offers some penetrating insights on the two dramatic years in which the Brotherhood moved from opposition to power.' Ian Black, Guardian

'A tour de force - This well-written and much-needed book by a respected British scholar admirably traces the origins and development, internal debates and frictions, geographical spread - and abiding contradictions - of a movement that, despite its ambiguities and shortcomings, remains very much a force to be reckoned with.' Alan George, University of Oxford

'Highly recommended, especially to those who see radical Islam, Jihadism, Wahhabism, Salafism and Islamism as one huge monolith and all equally to be feared.' New Statesman

'Pargeter is a brilliant and clear-eyed analyst of Islamic radicalism and never resorts to scaremongering.' Ian Pindar, Guardian

'Highly recommended, especially to those who see radical Islam, Jihadism, Wahhabism, Salafism and Islamism as one huge monolith and all equally to be feared.' --New Statesman

From the Back Cover:


Although the popular uprisings of 2011 were not driven by Islamist forces, it is the Islamist movements, and the Muslim Brotherhood in particular, that have filled the power vacuums that opened up with the collapse of the regimes of the region. How did they do it and how will they manage their new political role?

In this authoritative analysis, Alison Pargeter follows the twists and turns of the Muslim Brotherhood as it battled through the years of oppression under authoritarian regimes to finally become a key and legitimate political actor. From Egypt and Syria to Tunisia and Libya, the
Brotherhood and its affiliates are now faced with the complex task of transforming themselves from semi-clandestine opposition movements into legitimate political actors and, in some cases, into ruling powers.

This detailed and definitive work is the essential guide to understanding the forces shaping the Arab world today.
