"Very much enjoyed this book. It should do my students quite well."--John P. Dunn, Florida State University
"This is an excellent study of Islamic revivalism. It is timeless, and will benefit both students and scholars. Many young scholars and libraries have not had access to this book, and this reprinting will allow Mitchell to be of even more direct influence on Egyptian studies and the study of Islamic revivalism."--Vali Nasr, University of San Diego
"Richard Mitchell's book was one of the first serious studies of what it is now customary to call the 'resurgence of Islam' and it still remains one of the best....It helps us to understand why they have survived so many changes of fortune and are still a powerful force in Egypt and other Muslim countries."--Albert Hourani
"The Society of the Muslim Brothers
is a major seminal work that remains the standard history of the early Muslim Brotherhood. Essential reading for understanding the growth of contemporary Islamic movements across the Muslim world."--John Esposito, Georgetown University
