Overview

This book examines the ideology and social base of the Jordanian Muslim Brotherhood from its founding in 1945 to 1993. While there has been considerable discussion of contemporary Islamist organizations in Middle Eastern and Western literature, there has been insufficient attention devoted to the historical specificities of these movements in nation states. This analysis focuses on the relations between the Brotherhood and the Jordanian state as a determinant of the Brotherhood's ideological and social development.

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.
