Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"This path-breaking book is essential reading for anyone seeking to understand the complex and variable relationships between Islam and political party activities in the modern world." - Christopher Clapham, Centre of African Studies, Cambridge University

"For many observers in the West, Islamic political parties must seem like an enigma. This book reaches beyond the enigma to reveal the tremendous diversity, together with the distinguishing similarities. Analysts of democratization and of party politics specifically have much to gain by reading this book." - Professor Peter Burnell, University of Warwick, England
