Perspectives on Politics - Quintan Wiktorowicz

Mobilizing Islam is easily one of the best books on Islamic activism. Wickham's use of social movement theory and remarkable fieldwork produced a book that speaks to area specialists and students of contentious politics alike. Amidst the onslaught of ill-informed books on Islam in the post-September 11 period, Wickham provides a refreshing reminder that there is rigorous scholarship on Islamic activism.

Arab Studies Journal - Kristin Tassin

The book is one of the best texts available for studying a major Islamic political movement in its proper context.

Middle East Journal

Intellectually ambitious.
