Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Boulby examines the ideology and social base of the organization from its founding, based on the notion that the considerable discussion of contemporary Islamist organizations in Middle Eastern and Western literature have insufficiently analyzed specific movements in specific countries. She focuses on the Brotherhood's relationship with the Jordanian state to highlight several characteristics. Among them are a non-confrontational approach to the regime, a willingness to work within a parliamentary system without embracing liberal democracy as an end goal, and the disintegration of the symbiotic relationship in the last few years of the study period.
