Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Murphy, a Pulitzer-winning journalist and former Cairo bureau chief for the Washington Post, puts Egypt at the center of the growth of Islamic extremism, because it "provides the ballast in Arab politics and diplomacy." Offering a vivid portrait of Egypt today, she attributes the spread of violent Islam to the interaction of three factors: a general reawakening of Islam, the reign of authoritarian governments in the Middle East and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Richard W. Murphy senior fellow, Middle East Council on Foreign Relations This is a timely, solid, and highly readable account by Caryle Murphy of conflicts within Islamic intellectual and religious circles as their leaders seek to relate their faith to today's changing political and economic conditions. Their attempts to create a modern Islamic society have led to tensions with the Egyptian government. In relating Egyptian developments to those in the broader Arab world, she persuasively demolishes the conventional wisdom that Egypt is unique and that Islam is monolithic. This book provides altogether a valuable set of insights for readers interested in getting beyond the stereotypical descriptions of Islamic thought advanced by both friends and critics of Islam in recent years. -- Review

careful reporting and cogent analysis...indispensable -- The Washington Post, December 8, 2002
