Review quote

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. * Albert Hourani * "The Society of Muslim Brothers" is a major seminal work that remains the standard history of the early Muslim Brother-hood. Essential reading for understanding the growth of contemporary Islamic movements across the Muslim world." John Esposito, College of the Holy Crossshow more
