Endorsements: 'Alison 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. It is an important contribution to our understanding both of the Muslim Brotherhood itself, to the controversies that surround the movement and to the broader phenomenon of political Islam. A must read for scholars, students and anyone interested in the Middle East.' Jason Burke, author of Al-Qaeda: The True Story of Radical Islam '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 'Alison Pargeter's engaging and intelligent book makes a significant contribution to the existing literature on the Muslim Brotherhood. Her use of new sources, including interviews with key members of the Brotherhood, gives us a fresh perspective on this elusive movement, notably its shadowy international organization and the relations between its various branches. This is a welcome and highly readable addition to the growing body of work on the political Islamist movements that have shaped the contemporary Islamic world and beyond.' Karin von Hippel, Center for Strategic and International Studies, Washington
